In this episode of Ibec Voices we are taking you inside Aras an Uachtarain, the residence of the President of Ireland, to hear a very special address delivered by Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy.

As President of the Statistical & Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, Danny McCoy delivered the keynote address to mark 175 years of SSISI. Entitled “Sustainable Development: ‘Still’ The Opportunity for Irish Economic Policymakers”, his address covers topical matters including:

  • The challenge of reducing emissions by 50 percent in this decade;
  • The difficulties in holding a purely ecocentric or technocentric view of the world;
  • The manner in which we must deal with the environmental agenda.

The paper can be read in full here, and Danny McCoy’s Presidential Address can be watched here:
