The Dublin City Development Plan 2022–2028, is underpinned by the need for climate action. This focus is especially pressing as new developments occur in our area.
Environmental consciousness, including establishing a sustainable, low-carbon city, has arisen both from within local authorities, Government and at the EU level.
The Dublin City Development Plan states in very clear terms the importance of:
- A shift in behavioural patterns.
- The effective use of land well served by public transport.
- The use of renewable energy sources.
- The redevelopment of sustainable infrastructure in order for the city to make its contribution to emissions reduction.
Such measures as these will help increase the resilience of the city’s economy. It is envisaged that by 2050, Dublin will be a zero carbon city with all of its energy coming from renewable energy sources.
KIN has a keen interest in promoting green activities in the vicinity, including supporting the work of voluntary organisations such as Inchicore Environmental Group and other biodiversity projects.
