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.
What we are working on right now
Our environment is in crisis - protecting it is at the heart of the Green Party's principles. Your support is vital if we are to achieve this.
