Since ESB was established in 1927, it has always endeavoured to bring light and energy to the people it serves, allowing individuals and communities to fulfil their potential in every walk of life.
This is achieved not only through the provision of critical energy infrastructure, but also through ESB's contribution to the economy in the form of investment, taxes, dividends and jobs.
As a strong, diversified, vertically integrated utility, ESB operates right across the electricity market: from generation, through transmission and distribution to supply.
ESB’s position as Ireland’s leading energy utility, its stable business profile and its solid financial position ensures it is well positioned to meet the challenges that lie ahead and to support its strategic ambition to lead the transition to reliable, affordable low-carbon energy for the benefit of its customers.
ESB is a business built on the strength of its people. We are proactively embedding new safety, sustainability, people development and corporate responsibility strategies within our operations. Our objective is to be a positive and effective partner for each of our stakeholders, our staff, our customers, the communities in which we operate and for our environment.
ESB's Green Bond Framework has been designed to reflect our Brighter Future Strategy and will primarily contribute to Climate Change Mitigation.
ESB delivered improved financial results in the first six months of 2019, including a €50 million increase in operating profit compared to the same period in 2018.
We publish our Annual Report, including Financial Statements in March. We also publish Interim financial statements for the first six months of each financial year in September.
