The Bord na Móna Innovation Centre is the central support team for all innovative activities across the company. We are made up of a team of dedicated personnel working with internal commercial business units and external partners. Bord na Móna is undergoing a transformation. We are moving from a carbon intensive, peat dominated business to one that is more environmentally and commercially sustainable.
To achieve this, Bord na Móna set up a central innovation group to introduce a formalised Innovation Management Process and to establish a diverse creative approach to Innovation throughout the company. We also embarked on promoting a collaborative ‘Open Innovation Model’ to expand Bord na Móna’s boundaries and involve the outside world in our business transformation. We believe that the future of innovation is to look outside the company for challenges, opportunities and new business partnerships.
