About Bord na Móna

Bord na Móna is an Irish, commercial semi-state, climate solutions company helping lead Ireland towards a climate neutral future. Bord na Móna has been serving communities for over 90 years, always rising to meet the needs of the day. It was founded in 1934 as The Turf Development Board to enhance national energy security through peat harvesting, whilst generating employment, and became Bord na Móna in 1946.

Today, the company has radically changed our approach to face an even greater challenge: climate change. We have ended peat harvesting and now focus on developing climate solutions in renewable energy, sustainable waste management, carbon storage, and biodiversity conservation. Ireland has committed to ambitious climate goals and Bord na Móna’s climate solutions are helping to achieve them. Our Vision is to help Ireland reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This means helping to remove the same amount of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere as per the total amount of what has been released. 

To power a net zero future, we are expanding our renewable energy infrastructure. Although we have been constructing and maintaining large-scale infrastructure for decades, we are now using that experience to build renewable energy developments across the country. These developments are transforming the way we generate and consume energy.

Ireland has committed to generating 80% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030, and Bord na Móna is working across wind, solar, biomass and biogas to help achieve this target and to provide energy security for future generations.
