Kilkenny County Council Climate Action Plan 2024-2029

Kilkenny County Council adopted its inaugural Climate Action Plan in February 2024. 

The Plan sets out how the Council will respond to the climate crisis by improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and embedding climate resilience across the organisation. It also addresses how the Council will adopt a leadership role in the county by supporting local communities, businesses and other stakeholders to take climate action.

The Plan’s vision is that Kilkenny County Council will be “A climate resilient organisation that inspires and supports the County’s transition to a climate resilient, biodiversity rich, sustainable and carbon neutral economy by 2050”.

The Plan, which contains 95 actions, was adopted following extensive public and stakeholder consultation, gathering scientific data, and deliberations by the Elected Representatives and Staff of Kilkenny County Council.
