Community

We are committed to ensuring that community is at the heart of our business

Our Commitment to the Community

Building strong relationships in the communities where we are based, we operate and do business, is fundamental to carrying out our work effectively. We work with local communities to ensure that construction projects in the locality cause minimum disruption. We also provide a 24 Hour Gas Emergency Service attending over 17,000 call-outs a year within an hour of being reported.

For us, being responsible in the Community means investing in people, in their needs, in their interests and in their futures. Our involvement in the local community varies from assisting charitable and voluntary groups to supporting a wide range of educational initiatives.

Education Programmes

We support a number of educational initiatives across Ireland, with a particular focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), literacy and life skills.
