Sustainability at Bord na Móna - Our Core DNA

Eighty years ago, Bord na Móna committed itself to delivering a new industry to Ireland using our indigenous resources. Today, we are developing sustainable businesses with an understanding that we must work in harmony with the natural environment. Our focus on sustainability is guided by a triple bottom line; People, Profit, and Planet.

Sustainability is the heartbeat of our business

It means building a future where Bord na Móna is a profitable company, and also committed to protecting the environment. We have a strong link with the communities we serve going back generations. Our sustainability agenda is deeply invested in creating the brightest possible future for them.

Sustainability 2030

Our land is a huge asset and we will continue to produce energy but it will be through biomass, solar, landfill gas, wind, and waste to energy.

We are always looking at new uses for our land that are environmentally sustainable and commercially viable

We are currently conducting biomass growing trials to find the perfect indigenous source. If these are successful, it will be a significant development in terms of our goal to become the number one supplier, and user, of biomass materials in Ireland.

Mountlucas Wind Farm – A New Energy Story

In March 2015, Bord na Móna switched on a new more sustainable energy supply when it opened the Mountlucas Wind Farm. Situated in the Midlands of Ireland, the 84MW wind energy facility can supply the Irish grid with enough electricity to power 45,000 homes. Renewable energy, like that produced at Mountlucas, is contributing to Ireland’s EU targets and helping to decarbonise the Irish power supply.

Bord na Móna has been supplying energy and fuel products since its establishment – and will continue to do so, in line with a triple focus on People, Planet, and Profit

Bord na Móna’s people are its most important resource

The calibre and commitment of its employees are critical to the success of the company. Having satisfied and fulfilled employees is the reason the company ran the first of its annual engagement surveys last December and also re-launched its Health and Wellbeing programme. It’s all part of a drive to match the people needs of the business with the personal needs of an employee.
