Green finance in Ireland

Delighted to see the announcement this week that a base for green finance will be established right here in Ireland! Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S), a global network founded by the United Nations Environment Programme, will be putting down roots in Dublin as its European base with support from a €1.5 million investment by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) Climate-KIC.

The aim of FC4S Europe will be to develop a common European assessment tool to evaluate climate and sustainability credentials for financial centres, as well as pursue collaboration, raise awareness of sustainability issues and assist with the design and delivery of development plans to embed green finance within the activities financial centres, according to an article in The Irish Times.
