The Council is committed to the annual monitoring and reporting of the Plan. The CCAP now includes 144 actions in total, across the five theme areas of Energy & Buildings, Transport, Flood Resilience, Nature Based Solutions and Resource Management. Ongoing citizen and stakeholder engagement are at the heart of the CCAP, as our County as a ‘community’, continues its efforts to contribute to the shared national climate objective, as set out in the Government’s National Climate Action Plan – Securing our Future.

dlr continues to main-stream its efforts and collaborate across departments, staff and Elected Members, to achieve energy efficiency and emission reductions across its own buildings, facilities, functions and services, and influence climate action in the wider community. This is derived from the Council’s Corporate Plan, a core value of which is ‘Climate First - Adopt a climate first approach to decision making’.

These efforts were recognised by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, awarding dlr with the top prize of ‘Energy Team of the Year’ at the 2021 SEAI Energy Awards. The implementation and monitoring of this Plan, together with that of the other Dublin local authorities, in partnership with Codema – Dublin’s Energy Agency and the Dublin Climate Action Regional Office (CARO), provides for a clear roadmap and co-ordinated approach to enhancing the climate resilience of the Dublin Region, to 2030, 2050 and beyond.
