Biodiversity Action Plan 2016-2021

Bord na Móna recently launched the new Biodiversity Action Plan 2016-2021. This plan explains why biodiversity is important to Bord na Móna and how it intends to build on the wealth of peatland management, rehabilitation, restoration and conservation that it has built up since its establishment in the 1940s. The Biodiversity Action Plan will be integral to our transition towards sustainable and renewable businesses, reinforcing biodiversity development as a core value of the company.
