Our record

Here are just a few of our successes in being at the forefront of many campaigns to protect and support our natural environment.
  • Passed a comprehensive motion calling for establishment of Marine Protected Areas.
  • Succeeded in getting the Wicklow Mountains National Park increased by 5,000 hectares, protecting wildlife habitats and creating a tourist amenity.
  • Oversaw a doubling of Ireland's renewable energy capacity in four years, a rate not matched since.
  • Funded the first modern cycle greenway, the Great Western Greenway in Mayo, a model for the many that followed.
  • Introduced the first charging points for electric vehicles (EV), and the first grants to encourage EV purchases.
