Sustainability Steering Committee
Sustainability Governance and Sustainability Resources
In 2020, we established a dedicated Sustainability team within the Health, Safety, Quality and Environment (HSQE) department. The role of the Sustainability team is to drive sustainability initiatives across the business and report on our Sustainability performance.
The team reports to an overall Sustainability Steering Committee which consists of members from the Executive Management Team, including our Head of HSQE, Head of Human Resources, Head of Commercial, Head of Asset Management and Head of Finance. The Sustainability team also reports to the Gas Networks Ireland Management Team and Board, and Ervia Sustainability Steering Committee and Board.
We have robust management systems in place which are audited annually by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) and by our internal auditing teams. We are certified to five ISO management systems: ISO14001 Environmental Management, ISO50001 Energy Management, ISO45001 Occupational Health and Safety, ISO9001 Quality Management and ISO55001 Asset Management.
We also hold the Business Working Responsibly Mark which is aligned to the Social Responsibility Standard ISO26000.
