Greyhound Racing Ireland host volunteer Tree Planting Day at Limerick Greyhound Stadium

Rásaíocht Con Éireann / Greyhound Racing Ireland (GRI) demonstrated its commitment to environmental sustainability through a recently held company Tree Planting Day at its headquarters in Limerick. All staff at GRI Headquarters in Limerick were invited to volunteer and pro-actively engage in enriching the stadiums local ecosystem and help to provide a haven for a variety of species that reside on the site.

The Tree Planting Day initiative aligns with Greyhound Racing Irelands’ ongoing commitment to the organisation's Sustainability Strategy. By hosting this event GRI hopes to make a positive impact on the environment while fostering teamwork and environmental stewardship amongst its employees. Volunteers were divided into teams to plant a variety of native and naturalised trees selected for their ecological benefits and compatibility with the local environment. The activity aims to enhance biodiversity, provide additional shelter for wildlife, and create a legacy for future generations.

Tim Lucey, CEO of Greyhound Racing Ireland, emphasised the organisation's dedication to implementing a long-term, sustainable vision in alignment with The Climate Action Roadmap for 2030 agenda. He said, “Reflecting this commitment, the entire GRI team actively participated in our company planting day, during which 285 native and naturalised trees were planted at our headquarters site in Greenpark, Limerick. This inaugural pilot scheme serves as a cornerstone for numerous upcoming initiatives planned throughout the country, all playing a pivotal role in GRI's journey to fulfil our sustainability commitments”.
