Climate Finance Week Ireland 2021 kicks off today 11th October with AIB’s 5th annual Sustainability Conference.

The event runs until 15th October featuring a range of speakers and themes.

Given the more frequent extreme weather events and stern warning provided in the IPCC Climate Report the focus of the event will be how we as a society can respond to the challenge of climate change and work together to Beat the Climate Deadline.

This afternoon the Department of Finance, Sustainable Finance Ireland and the UN-convened Financial Centres for Sustainability will launch Ireland’s first national Sustainable Finance Roadmap.

As action 1 of the 2021 Ireland for Finance Action Plan, “Building on Resilience” the development of Irelands Sustainable Finance Roadmap signifies government’s commitment to advancing Ireland’s sustainable finance agenda. Ireland’s ambition is to be a leader in this space by 2025.

Working with over 50 key stakeholder organisations across Ireland’s financial services industry, Sustainable Finance Ireland and Skillnet Ireland, in collaboration with the Department of Finance led the development of the roadmap over a six-month period, culminating in the launch at Climate Finance Week Ireland 2021.

The roadmap is a key milestone in our sustainable finance journey as a nation. Built as a living document to evolve and guide Irish sustainable finance activities in the context of the European Green Deal and the Renewed Strategy for Financing the Transition to a Sustainable Economy, for the coming years.

In association with Department of Finance, UN Convened FC4S and Sustainable Finance Ireland. Supported by Skillnet Ireland.


  • Colin Hunt, CEO, AIB Group plc
  • Paul Healy, Chief Executive, Skillnet Ireland
  • Pat Cox, Ambassador, Sustainable Finance Ireland
  • Mary O’Dea, Chief Executive, IoB

The launch will be followed by an afternoon event focusing on financing biodiversity.
