ISIF's Climate Investment Strategy seeks to fund climate-positive initiatives which support Ireland’s transition to a Net Zero low-carbon economy. This is a two-pillar approach:
- Firstly, supporting the sustainable infrastructural requirements of the Irish economy out to 2030 in key areas where carbon emissions are prevalent, as outlined in the Government's Climate Action Plan.
- Secondly, in funding the development of new technologies and business models that will support the longer-term transition of the Irish economy to Net Zero beyond 2030 and before 2050.
ISIF has partnered with top-tier international investors with deep expertise in the climate arena, bringing smart capital and world-class talent to focus on Ireland’s decarbonisation journey. In 2021, ISIF announced its ambition to invest €1bn in climate-related investments over a five-year period. ISIF has made c. €500m of climate-related investments to date in support of this decarbonisation strategy, €235m of which has been invested since 2021.
