Ireland’s Sustainable Future—2022

Transitioning to a Green Economy

The Accelerate Green Conference—assessing how Ireland’s Economic, Technological, and Financial Systems are working to deliver a sustainable future for us all.

It’s Now, Or Never.

Across energy, food, waste, and transport, innovative solutions to address our greatest threats already exist: this is the time to deliver them at scale. At this conference, we feature the best of Ireland’s innovation ecosystem, who are delivering impact today, and we explore the challenges and opportunities to achieving the scale required.

Encompassing the energy and bioeconomy markets, and including the voice of Corporate, Scaling, Government, and the Financial sectors, this-one day event is an important gathering for key stakeholders.
