On Friday 6th December at the Kerryman Business Awards held at Ballygarry House Hotel, Siamsa Tíre was awarded the Kerryman Business Awards for Environment and Heritage. This was received in recognition of the continued Greening policies put in place by Siamsa Tíre. In the last year, Siamsa Tíre has provided segregated waste bins throughout the building. With support from staff and customers this has cut waste to landfill by 50% in the last year. Biodiversity surrounding the building has also improved as a result of greening policies implemented in conjunction with Kerry County Council. Siamsa continues to work at managing water, waste, energy, biodiversity, suppliers and so on in an effort to minimise its impact on the environment.
Siamsa Tíre has also been nominated for Tourism Awards under the Small Business and Environmental Sustainability categories which will be announced in February 2020.
