New Initiative to Help Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

New Initiative to Help Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Date: 12 Jul 2022

Launched by Cork City Council

Cork City Council officially opened the new Home Energy UpGrade Office (HEUGO), today, Tuesday 12th of July, on Grand Parade Street, Cork City. The first of its kind in Ireland, the new HEUGO office will provide free impartial guidance and resources to homeowners on energy upgrades and grant schemes. Free from financial commitment, homeowners will receive guidance on how to reduce their carbon footprint.

This new initiative follows the recent announcement from the European Commission that Cork has been selected as one of 100 ‘Mission Cities’ to lead the way on climate action and smart cities across Europe.

This is the culmination of four years involvement in the European interregional learning project INTENSIFY which aims to change our behaviour through active community engagement on matters related to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The HEUGO office supports this aim by offering advice to people on the tools and supports available to them to help decarbonise their homes.
