Richard Bruton: I thank Mr. Lynott and his team for their presentation. The Government has stepped up its ambition for 2030. Can ambition from the electricity sector be upped from where it is, that is, 70%, and at what marginal abatement cost is it at per tonne of carbon?

Questions on Promised Legislation (20 May 2021)

Richard Bruton: In the context of build back better, yesterday I published a draft framework for a circular economy as a rapporteur which, I believe, should be a central spine on our climate action planning. I do not need to remind the Minister that Ireland has 22% more waste than the rest of the EU. Our food waste would be the equivalent in climate impact to 1 million vehicles being taken off the road if...

Richard Bruton: I congratulate the Tánaiste, his Department and its agencies for the flexibility and adaptability they have shown.

How will we drive it on? I...

Allied to that question, do we need to change the way the inventory is measured at EU level? It is my understanding that neither peat nor forestry falls into the existing inventory.
