Burren Smokehouse joined the Burren Ecotourism Network as a founder-member in 2011. This affiliation gave us the Burren & Cliffs of Moher Geopark Code of Practice for Sustainable Tourism.
We have also created our own environmental management statement as follows.
We are committed to conserve Energy, reduce Waste generated and Recycle as much as possible of the raw materials that we utilise in the Burren Smokehouse. We are also committed to sustainable tourism and sustainable production and sourcing of food, to care for the environment and to leave as little trace as possible.
Following energy audits, we implemented these recommendations if they were not in place already:
Birgitta & Peter Curtin are Slow Food Members and believe in as well as support that movement.
Here a video about the use of Calor's BioLPG (natural and sustainable gas), and about making small decisions that impact your future lives for the better:
The Burren Smokehouse is fully committed to environmental good practice following the Geopark Code of Practice for Sustainable Tourism from management through to members of staff.
We provide a facility that encourages visitors to visit the region while positively impacting on our local economy, our local community and without harming our environment.
Our commitment to the principles is targeted and will be measured and reported to the administrators.
