The Council is one of just three organisations that have been shortlisted in the Public Sector category of the awards programme.
Dublin City Council (DCC) is the largest Local Authority in the country. Employing 6000 staff, the Council delivers over 500 services to the people living, working and visiting Dublin city.
There is extraordinary support from the Senior Management team to address the 5 key Climate Action Areas, which include: Energy and Buildings, Transport, Flood Resilience, Nature-Based Solutions and Resource Management. DCC has delivered energy savings of 34% since beginning its energy journey.
It has used innovative contracts to achieve its objectives, exhibiting to other public bodies what can be achieved through replication and coordination.
The Council recognises the multiple benefits of energy efficiency such as alleviating energy poverty in social housing and, through sustainable urban mobility plans, improving the air quality in the city.
The standard of applications for the 2020 SEAI Sustainable Energy Awards was exceptionally high so it is a great achievement for Dublin City Council to be shortlisted.
The Awards take place on 16th October 2020 and we wish the Council the very best of luck!Back
