Last chance to make a difference: Public Consultation for Dublin’s Climate Action plan ends soon. Dublin City Council would like to remind people to have their say.

The public consultation closes on Thursday 2nd November. 

Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste strongly encourages the public to participate in the consultation saying, “Our success is dependent on all of us. For the journey to carbon neutrality by 2030 and beyond, we know that we need everyone at the table, ready to work and invest in our future and the future of generations to come. I encourage you take action and be part of the journey.”

The Draft Climate Action Plan, named Climate Neutral Dublin 2030 sets out how Dublin City Council can promote a range of mitigation, adaptation and other climate action measures, to help deliver on the National Climate Action Plan and the Government’s overall National Climate Objective. Our goal is for Dublin to transition to a climate-resilient, biodiversity-rich, environmentally sustainable, and climate-neutral economy by the end of 2050.

Climate Neutral Dublin 2030 sets out the actions that Dublin City Council will take to prepare our city and people living here for the known impacts of climate change such as flooding, sea level rise, extreme weather events and drought. Climate Neutral Dublin 2030 will set out how the City Council will mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and contribute the global effort to limit warming to below 1.5°C.
