AIB community spotlight

We strive to be an accelerator for change toward a more sustainable way of living, which is why we’re backing our communities to achieve a more sustainable tomorrow. Together, we can make a meaningful difference, so we’re pledging to support, educate, learn from and empower our communities. AIB works closely with local communities through our programme of strategic community partnerships, volunteering, corporate giving and fundraising. We contributed over €10m in financial investment to support our chosen partners and the wider community in 2021.

Our partners in the community

 
 

 

GOAL

After over 16 years of supporting GOAL through fundraising events, in 2021, we became official lead sponsor of the humanitarian agency’s flagship event, the GOAL Mile. In 2021, the GOAL Mile reached more communities throughout Ireland and, virtually, across the globe than ever before. The growth of the event will empower GOAL to support communities affected by climate change across the world. We support GOAL’s valuable work in Ukraine and donations to the GOAL Ukraine Emergency Appeal. AIB has donated €250,000 to support GOAL’s Ukraine Emergency Appeal, as part of an overall €500,000 commitment to support those in need.

 

FoodCloud

AIB and FoodCloud have a shared vision of building more sustainable communities to support the just transition to a low carbon economy, and an Ireland where no good food goes to waste. Since the start of our partnership, AIB has enabled FoodCloud to redistribute over 20 million meals.
 
AIB employees have volunteered with FoodCloud, either in the Cork, Galway or Dublin Hubs, gleaning on farms, or through skilled volunteering, donating over 8,000 volunteering hours since 2018. Our partnership has meant that 7,640 tonnes of food was redistributed, with over 24,000 tonnes of CO2 eq. avoided.
 

 

Junior Achievement

Partnering with Junior Achievement Ireland is aligned with AIB’s wider sustainability strategy to build a society that is socially and economically inclusive through investing and raising awareness in access, education and innovation for our customers, colleagues and our communities. Over the course of our 25-year partnership, 29,700 students have completed Junior Achievement programmes facilitated by more than 1,260 AIB volunteers in 355 schools. In 2021, we committed to supporting a new Junior Achievement module, ‘It’s My Business’, which educates students on entrepreneurship. This will reach over 6,000 primary school students who will learn how to turn an idea into a business.
