Section 14(1) of the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2015 provides that an annual transition statement(ATS) must be presented annually to both Houses of the Oireachtas. The first ATS was presented to both houses of the Oireachtas in December 2016 by Minister Dennis Naughten T.D.
While an annual transition statement must only contain information in respect of the year immediately preceding the year in which the statement is presented, each statement also references some earlier policy developments and mitigation and adaptation activity.
Below are all annual transition statements to date:
