Acting on the climate change agenda is the one of the most important challenges facing business. The Green Wave in the recent EU elections suggests there is growing popular support for putting our economy on a more sustainable footing.
Given the urgency of the environmental threat, we need decisive action. At Ibec, we want to support Ireland in transitioning to a smart, low carbon and competitive economy by 2050. Done correctly, a transition presents a no-regrets opportunity to build a better Ireland.
We are delighted with the response and feedback to our recently launched new report, ‘Building a competitive low carbon economy’ and we encourage members to engage with our policy team in moving towards next steps.
