FROM SAVING THE ecosystems of honey bees, to their factories using electricity from local rivers, these Irish companies are concerned for the future of the environment.

Ailbhe Gerrard of Brookfield Farms set up a bee sanctuary to help bring back wildlife to her farmland and says its vital that “we farm in a way that isn’t just sustainable [but] that’s actually regenerative.”
