Show Notes

This episode offers insights on the upcoming climate action and low carbon legislation and the action plan that is going to support Ireland’s transition to net zero and achieve a climate neutral economy by no later than 2050.

Our guests on this episode of Ibec Voices are CEO of Ibec Danny McCoy and Marie Donnelly, the Chair of the Climate Change Advisory Council. The Council is the body the Government has appointed to develop the policies to meet the major regulatory changes set out of the Climate Action Bill which is likely to become legislation in July. Marie Donnelly is also a former Director General of the European Commission with responsibility for Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy and Innovation.

 This conversation looks at what this legislation means for the private sector and how practically it is going to be operated and implemented. 

 This episode is compulsory listening for anyone who needs to understand the significant and wide-ranging implications of this legislation.
