Cork 2030 – towards a zero net carbon city

As part of the EU 100 Mission Cities initiative Cork city has been selected to be part of a project the aim of which is to become a carbon neutral city by 2030.
This is an exciting but ambitious target and leaves just 5 years for major transformation to occur.


One aspect of the journey towards net zero carbon is that much of the existing building stock of the city (aside from new builds) will need to have deep energy retrofitting.  This will impact the majority of CBA members and will be disruptive in the short term but will also be transformative and presents a huge opportunity.


We invite you to this event to learn how this will affect your business, what needs to happen for this to be achieved, and what future financial supports will be available. 


CEO Cork City Council, Ann Doherty, will advise on the future plans and how they will support businesses during this period of transition.

We’ll also hear from further experts in Cork City, and businesses that have achieved success and leading the way driving sustainability, including –

  • Kieran Murphy, Contracts & Commercial Manager, Cork Area from Irish Rail
  • Ger Kiely from The Old Oak, who are self-generating a significant proportion of its energy needs through almost 100 solar panels on its roof
  • The oldest hotel in Cork, The Imperial Hotel, who just picked up Visit Cork’s Green Award. Deputy Manager, Jonathan Wallace, will explain what they have done to achieve this accolade
