ESB supports communities throughout Ireland working to improve their environment and locality. Many of the decisions about support are taken locally where ESB staff are working and engaging with their own communities and bring their local knowledge and expertise to bear. Our ESB Electric Aid Ireland fund is focused on assisting groups working in the areas of suicide prevention and the alleviation of homelessness (these were selected by our staff as their preferred causes for support).
ESB Group provided €2,060,618 in cash donations. Employees also volunteered 7,228 hours to local groups and projects during the year.
