Greening the Mission: Embassy of Ireland, Dar es Salaam Annual Report 2020
Following commitments by the Tánaiste and Secretary General to ‘green the Foreign Ministry’, the Embassy decided to attempt to lead by example and provide learning for the Mission team on practical steps to implement this commitment. The “Greening the Mission” initiative was guided by an annual action plan that was formulated through a series of sessions involving all staff. A core “Green Team” composed of volunteers then led on implementation and follow-up.
The Action Plan for November 2019 – Dec 2020 (Annex A) focused on optimising staff, facilities and systems, as well as raising the Green profile of the Embassy through our public diplomacy and communication. A summary of progress made in 2020 is set out in this Report
