Ireland’s SDG Champions Programme has run since 2019 with the aim of raising public awareness of the goals, as well as showcasing the work being carried out by the Champions to progress the SDGs and highlight practical ways organisations and individuals can contribute to reaching the goals.
More than 80 organisations applied to take part in the programme this year, emphasising the level of competition and how seriously sustainability is being taken by businesses in Ireland.
TIER adopted the United Nations’ SDGs as its sustainability framework in 2018, with a particular focus on Industry Innovation and Infrastructure, Sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production and climate action.
Peadar Golden, Ireland Country Manager, TIER, commented: “It is a great honour to be recognised as an SDG Champion by the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications. Since our launch in Ireland in 2021 we have been committed to demonstrating that dockless e-bikes and e-scooters can be safely integrated into people’s daily lives, offering a convenient alternative to the car for short trips. By making it easier to leave the car at home we can reduce CO2 emissions and congestion, helping to make our towns and cities nicer places to live and work.”
