We aim to strengthen our role in enhancing biodiversity and creating awareness around the biodiversity value of cutaway bogs.

On November 4th, 2010 we launched our Biodiversity Action Plan, which sets out a number of objectives which will allow us to carry out our work to the highest standards, and to achieve the best results.

As part of one of the objectives of the Biodiversity Action plan, the Bord na Móna Ecology team committed to monitor the progress of the activity. The team has come together each year to review the Action Plan. Please find the materials from each review below;
