Ireland creates its green growth

The Irish government has set the target to reduce carbon emissions by 51% by 2030, and to achieve a climate neutral economy by 2050.
Irish businesses are encouraged to invest in a green growth, with sustainable products and services.

Enterprise Ireland is the government organisation responsible for the development and growth of Irish enterprises in world markets. Entreprise Ireland is also responsible for helping businesses start or consolidate their sustainability plans.
