Corporate Responsibility (CR) is an important part of how Ervia delivers its business. Our CR activities underpin our commitment to enhancing the health and quality of life of the people of Ireland, protecting our environment and enabling economic and social development.
We centre our CR activities around the communities we work for and in, our workplace and marketplace and the environment we work hard to protect. We also ensure that they reflect our values of Collaboration, Performance, Customer Service, Safety and Integrity.
With extensive CR experience Gas Networks Ireland is one of 29 companies in Ireland to hold the Business Working Responsibly Mark, which certifies responsible and sustainable business practices and is recognised worldwide. Irish Water in contrast is in the early stages of its CR journey partnering with environmental education programmes to improve awareness of the role we play in delivering safe and reliable water services.
In 2017/18, Ervia is partnering with Youth Work Ireland to develop and deliver a pilot programme focusing on employability skills for young people who are not in employment, education or training. The pilot, which will be supported by volunteers from across Ervia, aims to develop the resilience and self-confidence of Ireland’s young people.
