Intro Text 

Dun Laoghaire -Rathdown County Council now joins many of the Mayors and  Municipalities of many European Cities and regions in a common vision that drives our action to tackle interconnected challenges: climate change mitigation, adaptation and sustainable energy. Together, we stand ready to deliver concrete, long term measures that provide an environmentally, socially and economically stable environment to present and future generations. It is our collective responsibility to build more sustainable, attractive, liveable, resilient and energy efficient territories.

DLR local authority principally commits to:

  • Reducing CO2 (and possibly other greenhouse gas) emissions on its territory by at least 40% by 2030, namely through improved energy efficiency and greater use of renewable energy sources;
  • Increasing its resilience by adapting to the impacts of climate change.
