Corporate Citizenship

A duty to the communities in which we operate

Since the foundation of the State, Bord na Móna has been maximising the potential of Ireland’s natural resources. Today, we have expanded beyond peat into other businesses built on our 80,000 hectare land bank.

We have an important role to play in Ireland now, and in the future. As we progress forward, we do so with an understanding of the duty we have to the communities in which we operate.

A History of Conservation

In the early 1970s, a group of Bord na Móna employees recognised, before anyone else, the need to conserve and protect the best remaining examples of bogs for future generations. These individuals were Bord na Móna’s first ecologically minded employees and championed the conservation of bogs in Ireland, both on the national and the international stages.

Our Fairy Door Tea Party helped to raise much needed funds for Barretstown

In 2015, funds were raised through generous donations from visitors to Lough Boora, and also through sales of ‘The Fairy Force’ story book.

Barretstown is a wonderful organisation that provides Therapeutic Recreation to children and families living with serious childhood illness.

Our employees have the opportunity to avail of an Education Support Scheme

This scheme has helped many people to achieve their ambition of furthering their education. It also means our company benefits from the skills acquired, new ideas and fresh thinking achieved through further education.

Bord na Móna is built on the hard work of those who have gone before us

We are proud to have a strong community of retired staff that meet up at certain times throughout the year. In the autumn, retired staff are invited to enjoy refreshments at our Newbridge headquarters and also in Tullamore.

In the summer, the Pensioners Committee organise a reunion in the form of a meal and a trip to an agreed place of interest. Those who attend get to catch up with friends and enjoy the company of former colleagues.
