The reality is that the cost of building apartments is so high that people can’t afford to rent or buy them, therefore they cannot be built  Every form of home has a place in the national response to the housing crisis and apartment viability must be addressed. For Cork to grow sustainably, we must create city centre living and protect the vibrancy and energy of our urban space.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; color: #0e0e0e;">Over the past number of years the Chamber team has shown great commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and lessening our impact on the environment. We have embraced a variety of initiatives to help us take steps in the right direction from reducing our use of water, controlling energy consumption and monitoring our waste production. This week we are running a survey which is focused on the matter of <strong>food waste</strong>, an issue which affects us all. We want to capture the perspectives of the Cork business community in this area, so we can better support our members in their food waste initiatives.
