This is the second in a series of semi-regular, semi-structured updates on recent activity in the Irish impact investing, innovation, sustainability, and SDG community.

Next week is a big week in the sustainability calendar, as we mark Earth Day 2021, between April 20–22. It’s a great opportunity as a business leader to think about the ways you can reduce your negative ESG impacts, and there’s some really helpful resources available. Here’s two for starters; first, check out Project Drawdown, a free library of practical solutions you can implement today in your organisation to reduce resources, increase carbon sinks, and improve society; second, there’s a new Sustainable Energy Community operating in Ireland that focuses on helping IT and tech-oriented businesses tackle the challenges of de-carbonising — lot’s of useful tools in there, and an active network of peers. Check out TechiesGoGreen.

Next, here’s a quick round-up of some interesting resources and events that caught my eye in the last few weeks:

That’s all for this update: please do get in touch if you want to give some feedback, or to suggest something for the next edition; I’d also love to hear if anyone implements any of the suggestions above for Earth Day! :)
