Businesses from across Carlow, Waterford, Wexford and Kilkenny attended the Building Better Business event to learn about navigating their green journey and about digital transformation.

Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Simon Coveney spoke at the Building Better Business event. Topics of discussion included the importance of supporting local businesses, buying Irish and the many government supports available for businesses in the South East and nationwide. Minister Simon Coveney also spoke about digital transformation and the importance of environmentally friendly business practices.

It was great to meet with local businesses and hear inspiring stories from regional companies about their digitalisation and decarbonisation success stories. Panel members included Joe Begley from ICON windows and Pauline Dunne from Killowen Farm.
