• Policy Priorities

  • The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. These Goals are an urgent call for action which acknowledge the importance of partnership between all developed and developing countries.

    Fingal Chamber, Chambers Ireland and ICC Ireland, together with our nationwide network of affiliated Chambers have unanimously pledged to support the Goals.

    Together we have worked with our Chamber Network and our Community Committee to help to educate the 8,000 businesses we represent about the Sustainable Development Goals.

    Our aim is to help businesses realise the opportunities these Goals create and provide companies with the confidence that meaningful results can be readily achieved. 

    We promote how the Goals positively impact businesses, communities, and livelihoods. All our policy outputs, including the Chambers Ireland Budget 2023 Submission, are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and seek to help our members address the challenges of an increasingly 'shock-prone' world. Our recommendations include measures that will support businesses to survive and continue to trade throughout this time of volatility and enable our town centres and local economies to thrive. 

    Our suggestions highlight the importance of investment in infrastructure, the Green Energy transition and the availability of affordable housing that offers security to everyone who makes Ireland their home. These investments will be vital if we are to be able to attract and retain the talent our businesses need to succeed. 

    Our cities and towns, our entire country, needs to become an attractive place to live and work if we are to be able to make the most of our opportunities.
