The Climate Action Plan, published by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment in June 2019 sets out an ambitious course of action to address the impacts climate disruption is having on Ireland’s environment, society, economic and natural resources.

The Climate Change Advisory Council is an independent advisory body tasked with assessing and advising on how Ireland is making the transition to a low-carbon, climate resilient and environmentally sustainable economy by 2050.

Its Chair, Professor John Fitzgerald, has described the Plan as ‘a good basis for developing policy’.

Shannon Chamber is delighted to welcome Professor John Fitzgerald,

to address its 2019 President’s lunch.

In his keynote address, Professor Fitzgerald will outline the wide-ranging measures required to enable Ireland deliver on the ambitious plans set out in the Climate Action Plan and how we, as individuals and businesses, need to change our behaviour to dramatically reduce emissions.
