Bord na Mona's vision "A New Contract With Nature" signifies the beginning of a transition from traditional businesses, heavily dependent on peat and fossil fuels - to a new, more sustainable business, focussed on resource recovery, wind energy, biomass, environmental products, district heating and ecotourism.
The Bord na Móna group is founded on complementary skills and experience acquired over 50 years. Established to develop Ireland‘s peat resources in the immediate post War years, it is now active across a range of industries with innovation at its core.
The company has strong skills in resource management and development, manufacturing, distribution, science, engineering and human resource development. It owns 80,000 ha of peatland, employs approximately 2,000 people and operates out of 20 locations throughout Ireland, United Kingdom and eastern United States. Its turnover year ending 2008/2009 was €401 million.
