Posted on 25 Apr 2018

Many communities around Ireland are working to reduce Ireland’s carbon footprint as well as saving money by implementing cost-effective energy-saving measures.

qwdClann Credo has a designated Community Climate Action Loan Fund of €10 million for local projects that support people taking climate action.

Over the years, Clann Credo disbursed over €8.5 Million in Community Loan Finance to projects involved in climate action.  These loans have helped communities save energy and money in: schools; sports clubs; community centres; churches; sheltered housing and even an eco-village.
