Sustainability and Climate Action
NEED To Act Now - Supporting Ireland’s transition to a low carbon, climate resilient and environmentally sustainable economy.
The NTMA is building on its leadership role in sustainable finance to support the delivery of Government’s climate action initiatives through its mandates and to be a Net Zero emissions organisation by 2030. The NTMA’s climate goals comprise of external and internal deliverables to be achieved through its business mandates, processes and systems. The four goals reflect the work currently underway with targets set to further enhance the NTMA’s drive to support Government’s climate action commitments. The goals also commit the NTMA to be environmentally sustainable, reflecting the “NEED To Act now”.
The oversight and monitoring of the NTMA’s
Climate Action Strategy is a priority for the NTMA’s Board and Executive
Management Team (EMT). The Chief Financial and Operating Officer (CFOO), with the support of the Senior
Business Manager – Sustainability, is responsible for the
co-ordination of combined climate action effort across the NTMA. The NTMA
Sustainability Group, established in 2019, oversees delivery of the NTMA
Climate Action Strategy while also facilitating cross unit collaboration and
information sharing with respect to climate-related activities. The NTMA has
also established an employee led Green Team to support the aim of the NTMA to
be a recognised leader in sustainable workplace practices in Ireland. The Green
Team assists in embedding new environmentally sustainable behaviours among all
employees and consists
of committed and engaged employees who undertake environmentally sustainable
initiatives in addition to their other responsibilities.
