Bord na Móna Change - working responsibly with nature

Bord na Móna is changing in ways that might surprise you. We’re powering 115,000 homes with renewable energy in ways you might expect – like wind power – but also in ways you might never imagine, like providing energy to over 8,000 Irish homes by turning waste into electricity. We are restoring and rehabilitating our peatlands for over 1,000 species of unique flora, fauna and wildlife. Recently, Bord na Móna announced that it will cease harvesting peat for power generation. Our vision is to engage in thriving, sustainable businesses long into the future.
