“The Centre of Excellence will further position Ireland as a global leader in sustainable finance by developing the talent, knowledge and expertise needed by businesses. We’re seeing greater collaboration across both the public and private sector and internationally through organisations like the EU and UN. The centre is a key step in achieving Ireland’s climate goals.”
