Hide / Show Abstract

From 2000 to the second half of 2008, Ireland enjoyed sustained and rapid economic growth. In this period, Ireland made progress in decoupling environmental pressures from economic trends, especially for transboundary air pollutants; CO2 emissions increased, but at a lower rate than GDP (relative decoupling). Energy intensity was considerably reduced, and is now the lowest in the OECD. Material intensity also steadily decreased, reaching the OECD average.
