Sustainable Northern Ireland’s mission is to work with partners to make Northern Ireland sustainable by creating a secure future built on a steadfast sustainable development framework. It works primarily but not exclusively with local government and public bodies, supporting and empowering collaboration to accelerate action on climate change and deliver a sustainable future for all.
It does this through a programme of capacity building, communications and events focused on key themes and offering opportunities for peer-to-peer support, learning and coordination. It facilitates the Northern Ireland Sustainable Development Forum, and provides the secretariat for the All Party Group on Climate Action. Sustainable Northern Ireland also develops policy positions on key issues related to the climate and planetary emergency, in order to help shape the policy agenda and accelerate action on sustainable development.
