Environment Policy Working Group

The Environment Policy Working Group acts as an information sharing platform for Environment and Health and Safety managers in the technology sector. The group works to represent Irish Industry to both national and European governments.

The Environment Policy Working group works closely with other associations which are impacted by environmental policy such as CEDA, the White Goods Association (WGA) and DIGITAL EUROPE. In addition, the group also liaises with representatives of WEEE Ireland and the European Recycling Platform (ErP), such as Enterprise Ireland, the Department of Enterprise Trade and Innovation and the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources. The Technology Ireland Environment Policy Working Group closely monitors discussions at European level for any developments which may affect member companies and the ICT industry in Ireland.

Prime amongst the objectives of the environment working group is to ensure that a cost effective, transparent and practical system is put in place to meet the targets and requirements under the WEEE, RoHS directives and REACH Directives.
