ISIF’s innovative approach to commercial state investment has seen it have a major impact on the funding environment for scaling Irish businesses, housing delivery and regional investment in urban regeneration, while also supporting the transformation underway in the critical agriculture and food sectors. Following its rapid and successful delivery of the Pandemic Stabilisation and Recovery Fund for larger Irish businesses, it has recently set out its ambition to deploy €1Billion in Climate investment.
