Climate change and sustainability

Irish businesses need to understand the risks and opportunities arising from both climate change and other sustainability issues.

Making sustainability a core, strategic commitment

Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing our world today. The sustainability agenda is accelerating with organisations coming under increasing pressure from investors, stakeholders and society as a whole to adopt strategies, operating models and reporting measures which align with the transition to a net-zero carbon emissions economy.

Businesses can no longer manage sustainability in a silo. Organisations can't just focus on mitigating the negative impacts of their activities on society and the environment. Now, climate risks and sustainability considerations need to be at the core of strategy and operations. They are crucial to transparency for investors and policymakers alike.

Alongside this is a growing consensus that traditional financial decision-making is a thing of the past. Progressive organisations are integrating insights about their people, their business relationships and the social impacts of their actions. They are also planning with natural capital considerations such as climate and biodiversity in mind.

Organisations who take action to orientate their strategic direction can protect and enhance their reputations and position themselves for future success.
