“Just like the Coronavirus pandemic, climate change does not recognise borders and we need an all-Ireland approach.

“We must secure a fair transition to a low carbon economy, and provide increased support for rural communities. 

“Ireland must lead the way in taking the necessary action to protect our planet and that means incentivising people to make changes to reduce their emissions.

“It also means supporting family farmers as they move to more sustainable food production.
