Details of the government's Climate Action Plan have been revealed.
It contains targets across every Government department to reduce emissions and meet climate change commitments.
Richard Bruton's new document is modeled on the Action Plan for Jobs, which he introduced during his time as Jobs Minister to boost employment after the recession.
It includes strict targets, monthly progress reports and extra oversight from the Department of the Taoiseach.
The Climate Action Plan aims to push Ireland to reach its 2030 targets, and to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
It puts targets in place for all government departments and bodies, and sets a roadmap in areas such as transport, agriculture and housing.
The plan provides for 950,000 electric cars on the road by the end of the next decade, as well as setting targets for home retrofitting and renewable energy.
Other initiatives include piloting remote working for staff in local authorities.
While this plan has been developed by the Department for Climate Action and the Environment, it has input from every sector of the government and sets targets for them all to meet.
Ministers signed off on it at a specially convened cabinet meeting.
