Bord na Móna has a new national mission

We are deeply aware of the immense and imminent challenges posed by climate change. The scale of this challenge requires a new national effort to ensure Ireland plays its full part in meeting the worldwide challenge. Bord na Móna is taking a lead in this new national effort. We are decarbonising and building a new, more sustainable business and Midlands economy.

We are decarbonising and building a new, more sustainable business and Midlands economy.

New Energy Strategy

Bord na Móna’s new Brown to Green energy strategy reacts and responds to national and EU decarbonisation policies. In the next few years, there will be a new Bord na Móna. We are accelerating the end of peat harvesting and replacing peat with renewable, greenhouse-gas neutral, biomass energy. This will provide the national grid with dispatchable green energy to support wind and solar generators which have greater variability.

Higher Value Recycling

Bord na Móna is accelerating investment in higher-value recycling and resource recovery business. We take the lead in developing a circular and sustainable waste industry for Ireland (the circular waste economy aims to minimise waste and instead recycle and recover resources wherever possible), targeting new recycling streams in line with national policy.
