About

Sustainable Nation is a not-for-profit, working with both the public and private sectors. Our purpose is to stimulate greater investment into smart innovations, new enterprises and sustainable business practices.

It is a platform for those working right across the low-carbon sector and capital markets to come together, understand each other – and ultimately do business together at a local and global level.

Forming part of the Irish Government’s IFS 2020 strategy, our ambition is to have €250 billion managed, domiciled and deployed into low carbon enterprise solutions, all underpinned by sustainable and responsible investment principles by 2021.


Our History

Sustainable Nation Ireland was created through a 2015 merger of Ireland’s Green International Financial Services Centre (Green IFSC) and The Green Way, an organization leading the cleantech cluster in Ireland’s capital city, Dublin.

A formal government memorandum led to Green IFSC’s establishment with the support of state agencies Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland, Bank of Ireland, legal firm Arthur Cox and the Irish Business and Employers Confederation (IBEC).

The Green Way was founded by Dublin City Council, Fingal County Council, Dublin City University, Dublin Institute of Technology and Dublin Airport Authority.
