Make Sustainability Your BusinessThe Green Transition Fund

The transition to a low carbon economy and achievement of a 51% reduction in emissions by 2030 across all sectors of the economy represents a whole-of-society challenge. Enterprise, along with all other sectors, must fundamentally change to adapt to this challenge and to realise the many opportunities that this transformation represents. As part of Ireland’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan funded by the European Union, the Green Transition Fund is supporting the decarbonisation of Irish enterprise.

The Green Transition Fund supports companies across each of the different aspects of their decarbonisation journey – from initial planning and capability building to investment, research and innovation. It is designed to support companies, whether starting out or already on the journey, to take action now and get ready for the low carbon, more resource efficient economy of the future.

The fund is comprised of two separate streams:

  1. The Climate Planning Fund for Business
  2. The Enterprise Emissions Reduction Investment Fund
