Project 1:

The first research project is focussed on investigating the area of environmental compliance and enforcement both in Ireland and internationally with a view to identifying what factors drive and influence corporate compliance behaviour amongst the regulated community nationally.

Project 2:

The second project involves using the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a reference point to investigate the landscape of sustainable development in Ireland and assess the impact of selected stakeholders, policies and supports on SDG achievement.

These projects see the further expansion of the R&D team at Central Solutions’ Limerick offices which operates across areas such as Lean Six Sigma, Water Stewardship, Corporate Sustainability and Behavioural Change.
