In order to support Ireland’s energy security Bord na Móna previously used much of its land to harvest peat for energy generation. The urgent need to support positive climate action measures means the company is now managing its business in a very different way.
As part of its Brown to Green Strategy, Bord na Móna is implementing an extensive peatland rehabilitation programme, developing its renewable assets and expanding its new low carbon operations.
A key objective of this strategy involves using our assets to increase our contribution towards meeting Ireland’s Climate targets from green, sustainable energy solutions. As the company undertakes this broad range of positive climate actions, it supports the transition to a green economy and in the next few years will also become one of the largest producers of renewable electricity in Ireland.
