Economic and environmental progress are intertwined. The public in general and Gen Z (the generation now coming to adulthood) in particular, wish to see a clear programme to address climate change and a move towards a low carbon economy.
DublinTown supports measures to assist businesses migrate to renewable energy options. We see a role for technology usage in achieving these objectives. We further believe that we must change how we do business to meet the climate challenge and customer expectations. We will continue to promote last mile and shared delivery using zero emission vehicles. We believe that emission free commercial vehicles should be allowed to use bus lanes during off peak hours to encourage the migration to these vehicles by city centre businesses.
We support investment in Green Infrastructure. More planting can help mitigate against flooding, assist carbon capture as well as creating a more aesthetically pleasing environment. We will establish a Sustainability Committee to promote probusiness climate change policies.
