Public Accounts Committee

2018 Annual Report of the Accounts of the Public Services
Chapter 9 - Greenhouse Gas-Related Financial Transactions: Discussion

7:40 pm

Mr. Gerry Brady:

Mr. Morrin mentioned environmental subsidies. They amounted to €895 million in 2017. Retrofitting and such action would result in lower emissions and lower energy use. A very positive way to improve the environment is to have a scheme specifically designed in this regard.
