European Commission document highly critical of Ireland’s response to climate change – time for government to act
The Environmental Pillar is calling on the government to strengthen the Climate Bill in light of sharp criticism for lack of action.
The Environmental Pillar, which is made up of 28 Irish environmental NGOs, is calling on TDs and Senators to amend the Climate Bill.

The EC Country Report Ireland 2015 working document states:
“No progress was made in identifying how Ireland commits itself to meeting its existing, binding climate and energy targets for the period up to 2020 in an integrated way and how best to use the earmarked, available EU support for the structural development needed in the different areas.” read full story / add a comment
