The must-attend conference
on Ireland’s environment.

Please note:
This conference has been rescheduled to 18–19 January 2022.

Environment Ireland® is Ireland’s major environmental policy and management conference. Now in its 17th year, this two-day event features a range of focused sessions highlighting the pressing issues facing the environment in Ireland and further afield.

Ensure you don’t miss the latest developments in environmental policy and updates from across the sector and put your questions to expert speakers during dedicated Q&A sessions. This is an important opportunity to bring all those involved in shaping the future of Ireland’s environment together for two days of discussion and insight.


Ireland in 2050: Becoming an environmental leader

Ireland has traditionally been viewed as a laggard on environmental issues, particularly in the area of climate. A step change is required for the country to become a global leader. It is encouraging to see policies and public awareness beginning to work towards this ambition, but huge challenges remain. The Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated that society-wide change can be achieved quickly. It is important that the conservation of our environment remains a priority moving forward.

There are many important topics for this year’s Environment Ireland® programme to discuss, not least tackling the biodiversity and climate emergencies.

The Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021 has set the goal for Ireland’s transition to Net Zero and achieve a climate neutral economy by no later than 2050. It represents a watershed moment for Ireland’s future climate and sets legally binding targets that must be met.

This ties in with ambitions at European level, with the European Green Deal aiming to make the EU the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. A dedicated Climate session will open day two of the conference with a range of speakers considering the impact of climate ahead of COP26 and the future outlook.

Biodiversity, public health and water also remain high on the agenda. New legislation has been brought forward to implement a circular economy and is another important development.

Environment Ireland® is the major event for the Irish environment sector. Bringing together Ireland’s environmental stakeholders in one place, the conference provides a wide range of expert speakers examining the overall state of our environment.
