“Malone O’Regan has been involved with Phil and an environmental certification since 2005. Throughout that time we have enjoyed annual savings across all our utilities and formalising our monitoring has enabled us to ensure that we are at all times working towards reducing our carbon footprint. Phil has been integral in helping us to get started and the procedures for setting up our system and policies couldn’t be simpler. We are proud to hang our certificate at reception, and in these challenging times we have noticed that having an environmental standard in place has helped improve our image with both our existing and potential clients.”

Nollaig Brennan, Malone O’Regan Consulting Engineers, Waterford.

“A big thanks to Phil Walker of €coMerit – he opened my eyes to the possible savings. He came and did an initial inspection and pointed me in the right direction to save money. He showed me the benefit of putting all my electricity, gas, water & waste bills on a spread sheet and looking at them over a year – Then implementing changes to save money and watch the bills go down. We are looking to the future in making more and more changes as technology improves. Our next investment will probably upgrading our air conditioning systems – replacing 6 outdoor units with one that works on glycol (a type of antifreeze). But Phil is always there with advice, to bounce idea off and to make sure am not straying from the €coMerit path.”

Jim “Flash” Gordon, Revolution Gastro Bar & Escape Niteclub, Waterford.

€coMerit helped us reduce day-to-day costs and improve our environmental performance. This year we will save €7,000 on our electricity bill alone. We have improved housekeeping, reduced pollution risks and now aim for ever-tighter control on energy, water and waste.”

Eddie Hannon, Garage Manager, Bus Eireann, Waterford.

“The steps that we have taken here have lessened our environmental impact, we have made significant financial savings and the whole process has given us all a shared sense of achievement.”

Mary Carty, Services Manager, Tory Services, Waterford.

“Our €coMerit advisor helped us identify €1,600 of annual savings through simple practical measures. It has opened our eyes to something that was staring us in the face every day and has heightened awareness throughout the company.”
