We develop initiatives that we believe will move the needle on climate and sustainability action in Ireland.
We conduct research, develop ideas, and design collaborative solutions.

The Irish Climate Tech Opportunity
SustainabilityWorks’ and PwC’s new report ‘The Irish ClimateTech Opportunity 2023’ showcases 36 of Ireland’s innovative Climate Tech entrepreneurs whose solutions will help make net zero a reality.
Climate Tech is defined as technologies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions (including carbon) or addressing the impact of climate change. All economic sectors need to decarbonise, so Climate Tech companies are distributed across all industries, including energy, the built environment, food, agriculture and land use (FALU) and transport.
The urgency of the climate crisis means that more must be done and at an accelerated pace so that Ireland’s Climate Tech sector can flourish and fully leverage its potential.
If Ireland truly wants to be part of the Climate Tech innovation wave, the time is now.
This project, funded by the Environmental Protection Agency, explored how Irish businesses need to adapt to climate risks (R) and opportunities (O) in order to be resilient for the future.
The research focused on five business sectors that are important to the Irish economy. For each of these sectors we created a business-friendly climate adaptation guide, which includes a step-by-step approach on how to do a climate risk assessment and get your business climate ready. The guides were published in May 2022.

This project is funded under the EPA Research Programme 2014-2020. The EPA Research Programme is a Government of Ireland initiative funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment. It is administered by the Environmental Protection Agency, which has the statutory function of co-ordinating and promoting environmental research.
Financing Energy Efficiency Retrofit
This research project, funded by the SEAI, took an in-depth look into the challenge of financing the deep energy efficiency retrofit of Ireland's homes. The final report, published in December 2020, gives finance providers the information they need to be able to quickly develop and scale effective new products and solutions.
This project was funded under the SEAI's Research, Development and Demonstration programme 2019.
