About the Irish Business Design Challenge

The Irish Business Design Challenge (IBDC) is aimed at all eligible micro, small and medium enterprises in Ireland that have designed sustainable products, services, or strategies that have benefitted their customers, communities and the environment at large.

Sustainable design seeks to create opportunities for positive impacts on the environment, reducing the consumption of non-renewable resources, minimising waste, and creating healthy, productive environments.
