IPCC’s Five Year Plan

IPCC Strategic Business Plan 2011-2015IPCC have a five year Strategic Business Plan spanning the period from 2011-2015. This document was developed by the Committee of Management of the IPCC as part of their governance of the organisation. IPCC’s mission is to ensure the conservation of a representative sample of the peatlands of Ireland for future generations to enjoy. Our Strategic Business Plan will help us to achieve this.

The aims of the 2011-2015 IPCC Strategic Business Plan are to:

  • set out our vision and mission
  • set out the long term direction of the IPCC
  • provide a framework for decision making
  • provide a basis for financial governance
  • provide a framework for operational planning
  • help explain our role to others

The Strategic Business Plan focuses on 7 key activities of the IPCC which are needed to achieve our goal and lists the targets we hope to achieve by 2015. A brief description of each one is given below.
