The Programme for Government commits to an average 7% per annum reduction in overall greenhouse gas emissions from 2021 to 2030 (a 51% reduction over the decade), and to achieving net zero emissions by 2050. This will be challenging and will require fundamental changes in so many parts of Irish life.
The Government has decided to prepare the next Climate Action Plan, which will set out actions that must be taken in order to ensure we deliver on the commitments in the Programme for Government, including making sure we achieve our 2030 targets, prepare for climate neutrality no later than 2050, and make Ireland a leader in responding to climate change.
As part of this consultation, you are invited to consider the cross-sectoral and sectoral implications of the overall increase in climate ambition set out above, and to set out proposals for additional policies and measures across sectoral areas, including estimations of the associated greenhouse gas emissions reductions and/or increased resilience to the locked-in climate change impacts.Back to Calendar
