Finalised in September 2021 and effective from January 2022, Central Bank of Ireland's new Strategy is designed to ensure we can meet the challenges of a changing world and deliver on our mission and vision.

Our Strategy will enable us to continue to fulfil the objective set out in the Central Bank Act 1942, which states that our “constant and predominant aim shall be the welfare of the people as a whole”.

Reviewing Progress on Our Strategy 

June 2024 marks the halfway point in delivering our five-year Strategy.  We are now reviewing our progress and evaluating developments in the operating environment to understand whether we need to change any aspects of our long-term strategic direction and/or key strategic priorities.

Strategic Themes

Our Strategy centres around four strategic themes.

How Our Strategy Was Developed

Achieving the target outcomes of our Strategy will require us to continue to manage our resources, risks and priorities, as we navigate the complex and evolving context in which we work.

In developing our new strategy, we sought the views of our people through multiple focus groups, engagement sessions and meetings with our internal Corporate Social Responsibility and Diversity and Inclusion networks.

We also invited civil society advocacy groups and industry members to share their views on our strategic priorities at a series of listening events in 2021. And we engaged with external stakeholders through a public engagement process on our website.

We have published a report containing the submissions we received as part of this process.
