Energia Group publishes Responsible Business Report 20/21

Energia Group has published a comprehensive new report that describes many of the initiatives the Group is undertaking to operate as a responsible business, to improve the lives of colleagues, customers and communities, and actions to mitigate the impacts of the ongoing climate crisis.

This year's report (2020/21) contains information, statistics and performance indicators across a wide range of programmes being undertaken by the Group.



“Our sector finds itself at the epicentre of the climate crisis where the biggest challenge of our times demands an enthusiastic response.  Accordingly, as a business, we have maintained and enhanced our commitment to tackling climate change and to playing a leading role in energy transition on the island of Ireland.
As with the pandemic, this decade will require unprecedented change in how we go about our lives.  Energia Group has always embraced change and we will relish the changes ahead while remaining committed to our customers and the communities in which we operate.”
Ian Thom, Energia Group CEO
