Climate Action 

According to the the Irish Government " Climate Action is the most pressing long-term global challenge of our time and is a significant priority for this Government.

Through our strengthened climate legislation, Our Shared Future, and our annually updated Climate Action Plan, we have set ourselves the ambition of halving Ireland’s greenhouse gas emissions by the end of the decade, and of putting Ireland on course to becoming carbon neutral by 2050.

We are determined that Ireland will play its full part in EU and global efforts to stop climate change and, in so doing, harness the opportunities and rewards that will come from moving quickly to a low-carbon society.

We must harness our massive untapped, renewable natural resources – providing greater energy security, stable prices, more jobs, and regional development.

Achieving these ambitions will require a coordinated effort across Ireland and every economic sector will be involved. It requires no less than a national transformation over the coming years in how we work, travel, heat our homes, source our energy and use our land.

This is a national endeavour that will require a positive, sustained engagement from people across all communities, all walks of life and all sectors."
