Corporate Social Responsibility at ESB
The ESB was the winner of the Outstanding Achievement in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award at the 2016 Chambers Ireland CSR Awards. ESB was selected by the judging panel for having CSR practices embedded at the company’s core and for the organisation’s ongoing dedication to community engagement and responsible business practices.
In 2015 the ESB marked 10 years of charity funding through ESB ElectricAID Ireland and the Energy for Generations Fund. Over the previous ten years, in consultation with their staff, ESB has focused their community group support on three areas: education, homelessness, and suicide prevention. With over 400 community and voluntary organisations supported with €10 million of ESB funding in the past decade, the ESB's investment has made some real impacts across the island of Ireland.
