Ireland ranks 10th out of 15 comparable EU countries in this year’s Sustainable Progress Index, commissioned by Social Justice Ireland. The index comprises three dimensions: economy, society and environment. Ireland is ranked 11th out of the 15 countries on the economy dimension. On the social index, Ireland is in the middle of the ranking, in 7th place. Ireland, however, scores last on the environment index which suggests we are facing significant challenges in meeting our environmental targets.
