Stage 3 - Cork County Council Climate Action Plan 2024-2029

Cork County Council adopted our Climate Action Plan 2024-2029 on Monday 12th February 2024.

The Cork County Council Climate Action Plan 2024-2029 is aligned with the Government’s national climate objectives and targets, which seek to transition to a climate resilient, biodiversity rich, environmentally sustainable and climate neutral economy by 2050. The Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Act 2021 frames Ireland’s legally binding climate ambition to deliver a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 51% by 2030.

Cork County Council will use its Climate Action Plan (CAP) in planning how it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from across its own assets and infrastructure, whilst also taking on a broader role to influence, facilitate and co-ordinate the climate actions of communities and other stakeholders and what it will do to advocate for climate action in County Cork.
