Written answers (Question to Public)

The level of ambition set out in the Climate Action Plan will require significant investment across the entire economy. However, much of this investment was already anticipated and provided for through the commitments included in the NDP, which include over €30bn for climate action and sustainable mobility. The Government has agreed that the cumulative Exchequer costs of the commitments included in the Plan will need to be delivered within existing multi-annual ceilings and the funding commitments made in the NDP.
