The implementation of the CCAP is an ongoing shared vision across the four Dublin local authorities, who are working together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy efficiency and enhance the climate resilience of Dublin as a city region.

The four targets in the Plan are as follows:

• A 33% improvement in the Council’s energy efficiency by December 2020;

• A 40% reduction in the Council’s greenhouse gas emissions by 2030;

• To make Dublin a climate resilient region, by reducing the impacts of future climate change-related events; and

• To actively engage and inform citizens on climate change.

The Council has committed to reviewing and monitoring the CCAP, in line with the requirements of the National Adaptation Framework and EU Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy processes. This Annual Progress Report presents a summary of progress to date across the five theme areas of Energy and Buildings, Transport, Flood Resilience, Nature-Based Solutions and Resource Management.

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.
