Guinness Storehouse, a green building.

My congratulations in St Patrick´s day:

“Sustainability and enhancing the environment of the Dublin communities has been a core philosophy of the Guinness Company since it was founded,” said Paul Carty, Managing Director at the Guinness Storehouse, the brewery’s large and historic facility at St. James’s Gate in the Irish capital. Last year the Storehouse, now a major tourist attraction hosting a million visitors annually, received a three-star accreditation from Sustainable Travel International for its environmental commitment. (The actual brewing was moved from the old facility in 1988.)

Among the highlights recognized by the award are these:

Adoption of environmental performance indicators
Measures to reduce waste, chemical use, and energy consumption
Use of paper products derived from sustainably managed forests
Advanced lighting technology
Local food sourcing
Locally sourced construction materials
Sustainability training for staff
