Environment Ireland® is Ireland’s major environmental policy and management conference. Organised in association with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, the conference is now in its 13th year.
As Ireland moves towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions with the launch of the National Mitigation Plan, it is looking likely that Ireland will fail to meet the 2020 EU emission targets. These targets are hugely important as we aim to achieve a competitive, low carbon, climate-resilient and environmentally sustainable economy by 2050. This year’s conference programme reflects the current changing nature of the Irish and international environment, including a wider focus on the National Planning Framework, implementing the Water Framework Directive and working towards achieving a circular economy. It is important not only to hear the latest developments in policy, but also to discuss and put your questions to expert speakers during dedicated Q&A sessions. Ensure you don’t miss this opportunity to hear directly from those individuals and organisations shaping the future of Ireland’s environment on their priorities for delivering a cleaner, greener environment which supports sustainable economic growth.
