The study is focused on investigating the effect of sustainable investment strategy in accomplishing long-term growth and performance of organisations, mainly in the Irish market. The study also seeks to recognise the ways through which sustainable investment can contribute towards strengthening organisational performance in the long run in Ireland. The research incorporated quantitative methods, descriptive design and deductive approach to draw Ireland specific data and establish a link amid organisational performance and sustainable investment. A survey technique is used for data collection, and the survey is conducted with twenty-six managers and investors in different Irish organisations. Random sampling and statistical analysis technique are adopted in this study for sample selection and evaluation of data, respectively. Other than this, secondary data is obtained from reviewing the literature. It is found that the Irish businesses pay adequate attention towards sustainable investment and gives priority to sustainable investment upon recognising its advantages in the form of high growth and performance, maximisation of returns, strong competitive position and high financial return. It is concluded that sustainable investment helps in enhancing economic transactions and improving financial accountability which leads to long term growth of Irish firms. The findings highlight the benefits of sustainable investment for businesses and risk factors concerning sustainable investment which can be considered by organisations and investors prior to making investment decisions. The study also shed light on the contribution of sustainable investment on the long-term performance of organisations.
The study does not focus on the subjective dimensions of the research problems and primarily relies on numerical data, thereby indicating a lack of in-depth assessment.
