Three pillars

No business is an island. We are all part of a wider system of people, communities and commodities. Everything we do has an impact, and it is our duty to give back to the world as it gives to us.

Inspired by the ethos and ambition of the Sustainable Development Goals, our new CSR programme is built around three central pillars: our people, our communities and the environment. Part of the group’s wider campaign strategy, this structure allows us to focus our activity, connect with our partners, and work together to shape the best possible future for our families and friends.

Our people, our community & the environment

Our people

Panda is the people that make it. They are the foundation of our success and the key to our future.

1,400+ employees

Panda creates employment opportunities across Ireland and is proud to provide accessible, flexible and inclusive working.

120 professional careers

34 nationalities

With staff representing 34 countries worldwide, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce.


Our community

Proud of our Irish roots, Panda is committed to supporting local initiatives with a focus on homelessness and early learning.

Focus Ireland

Like Focus Ireland, we believe that homelessness is fundamentally wrong and are proud to be part of their life-changing work.

The Simon Community

Homelessness in Ireland is on the rise. That’s why we’re committed to helping the Simon Community achieve their vision and make ‘home’ a reality.

Early Learning Initiative

By supporting Ireland’s Early Learning Initiative we can help marginalised families achieve their educational, career and life goals.


Our environment

Panda is always looking for new ways to protect our planet.

Maximising recycling, composting and energy recovery, we’re avoiding landfill and reducing waste related greenhouse gases.

1,562,241 tonnes of recycling

As Ireland’s leading provider of sustainable waste management services, we’ve processed, recycled, reused or recovered 1.5 million tonnes of waste.

65,000 homes powered

We’ve turned non-recyclables, food waste and biogas into enough renewable energy to power 65,000 homes across Ireland.

Carbon conscious

We’re scaling renewable energy across our sites as well as investing in a new green fleet to better service our customers.


Looking forward

30 years young and Panda’s story is only just beginning. As we take the first steps on our CSR journey it is exciting to see this activity grow. Small or large, every change we make has a direct impact on our people, communities and the environment. We celebrate this contribution and are proud to support local activities, as well as the broader implementation of long-term, sustainable development goals.

As we look forward, Panda is committed to developing its CSR strategy. More than just a utility provider, we want to use our knowledge and experience to drive responsible business practice forward. That means putting (and keeping) ourselves at the centre of a circular economy that eliminates waste and reuses its resources. It means setting our own standards and holding ourselves accountable to them. And finally, it means building a better business through a model of creative innovation, clear vision, and an absolute commitment to keep our people, communities and the environment at the heart of everything we do.
