As part of the ‘Project Ireland 2040’ plan, the government announced a €500 million fund to help deal with climate change and it’s challenges. The Climate Action Fund will support initiatives that help Ireland meet its EU and International climate and energy targets.

The funds are available to a wide range of bodies and organisations in both the public and private sectors, including, local government, businesses, educational institutions, chambers of commerce and more.
