The National Sustainability Summit serves as a forum where business leaders, innovators, regulators and Government can examine both the commercial opportunities in the emerging green economy as well as the challenges faced in achieving sustainability goals.

There are currently 3000 delegates registered to attend the one day event which will be the biggest of it’s kind in Ireland.

The event is taking place at a pivotal time – in the run-up to the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21/CMP 11) in Paris this December.

Paris 2015 is expected to conclude a groundbreaking international agreement on emissions that will cover all nations of the world for the first time.

Given such a legally binding deal could be implemented as early as 2020, so the National Sustainability Summit provides the ideal platform to discuss and debate what this will mean for Irish business, regulatory bodies and Government.

The speaker line up consists of senior management from influential companies who have delivered significant results in reducing their energy usage and emissions while also engaging in sustainable projects. Speakers from companies such as GSK, Glanbia and Sisk as well as public bodies like the Office of Public Works, EirGrid and eCars at ESB.

There will also be a number of experts speaking on sustainability in the many key areas of Irish industry; Food and Agriculture, Construction, Data and IT, Transport, Logistics and Supply Chain.

The layout of the event is designed to maximise the opportunity for those attending to network and make new contacts. Delegates attending the conference will be offered the opportunity to:sustainability cows
