The Chambers Ireland SDGs
Have a look at the highlights video from our Sustainable Business Breakfast featuring former President of Ireland Mary Robinson
In one way or another, almost all the Goals reflect the objectives of the Chamber network.
That being said, we have chosen to focus on five of the Goals that we believe we can both contribute directly towards and champion through our work in the Chamber Network.
If Ireland is to fully implement the SDGs domestically by 2030, each represented dimension of society must be included in the progress. We believe that Chambers Ireland, with its wide geographical reach to all regions of the country, is in a strong position to do so.
We have chosen to focus, initially on Goals 8, 13, 11, 9 and 5, and we commit to championing the Goals in all the work that we do, to ensure that making progress in achieving these goals is reflected in all the work that we do.
- Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
- Goal 13: Climate Action
- Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
- Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
- Goal 5: Gender Equality
In December 2019, as part of our support for the Make A Difference campaign, Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot wrote an op-ed on how the SDGs can be used as practical tools by businesses for driving Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices. Read the full op-ed by clicking here.
