The Council’s Climate Change Action Plan marks a key milestone in an on-going partnership between Council staff, elected members, Codema, the Dublin Climate Action Regional Office, and a range of other stakeholders. This is the moment when we must take action and show our ambition through real action to preserve the world as we know it for the generations that will come after us – our own children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. This Council is committed to continued climate action, across the key areas of adaptation, mitigation and public engagement, undertaking of a range of initiatives that will enable the county to contribute to reaching national and European energy targets to 2030, 2050 and beyond.”
The CCAP is aligned to the Government’s Climate Action Plan 2019 To Tackle Climate Breakdown. The Government’s Climate Action Plan 2019, comprising over 180 actions, represents a shared outlook and an all of society approach, to how Ireland will achieve its 2030 climate and energy targets, and sets out a trajectory to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The leadership role of local authorities across Ireland, in tackling the climate crisis, is recognised in the Climate Action Plan 2019, together with stimulating local level action across other sectors and by the general public.
