• Working towards a sustainable future for the Irish Racing and Breeding Industry

    At Horse Racing Ireland, our vision is to ensure Ireland will be the global leader in Horse Racing and Breeding, sustaining a vibrant and rural industry. Our mission is to develop and promote Ireland's horse racing and breeding industry to administer and govern the sport of horse racing in Ireland, and to cultivate and promote the highest standards of integrity and welfare.

    Central to this will be a clear focus on environmental, social and corporate governance, and to set out and achieve challenging goals for the racing and breeding industry.

    Horse Racing Ireland is fully committed to tackling climate change in an imaginative way, as well as bringing the wider industry along with us. We will work with our racecourses, our stakeholders and the thousands of people in all parts of the country who make up the racing and breeding industry, to promote the highest standards in sustainability and develop a strategy that is benchmarked against the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.


    What are the UN Sustainable Development Goals?

    The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015. They provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

    We have chosen to focus our sustainability efforts on the areas where our industry can be most effective.
