What We Do

The Business Environment

The department engages with key stakeholders to address issues that arise on a business or sectoral basis across all areas of enterprise activity.

These business and sectoral initiatives are across a wide range of areas covering internationally traded goods and services as well as the domestically traded sector. The key focus is to develop and implement policy to enhance the enterprise environment leading to the start-up and growth of competitive firms in Ireland and sustainable development for enterprises of all sizes.

The department provides analysis on economic infrastructures and costs as they impact on enterprise development across key areas including water, waste, energy, telecommunications, ports, airports, land infrastructure, housing and planning. It provides analysis and expertise on matters relating to climate action and policy development as they pertain to the enterprise sector and influences outcomes regarding Ireland's international obligations on climate change and emissions targets and the best ways for enterprise to become sustainable and contribute to environmental commitments.
