Spearheaded by Sean MacHale, an EY Ireland Financial Services partner, the hub is on track to achieve double-digit growth within the next twelve months, reflecting the burgeoning demand for ESG-centric services worldwide.

The Dublin hub's strategic importance is further amplified by its collaboration with sustainability experts across Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the US. This global network is committed to delivering cutting-edge advice and insights on ESG reporting, with a spotlight on biodiversity, EU regulation, and international sustainability goals.

A Catalyst for Change

Colin Ryan, EY Ireland Financial Services Country Lead, emphasizes the pivotal role of the financial services sector in driving the transition towards a sustainable future. The sector's increasing regulatory obligations underscore the urgency for comprehensive support systems like the EY sustainable finance hub. This initiative is designed to equip firms with the necessary tools and knowledge to effectively report on their activities and maintain compliance with a dynamic regulatory landscape.

Sean MacHale echoes the sentiment, highlighting the financial sector's critical need for progress in ESG matters. The hub aims to address the pressing demands for regulatory reporting and disclosure, fostering transparency and accountability as firms strive towards their Net Zero and social inclusivity goals.
