Climate Finance Week
At AIB we believe it is important to support Ireland in its transition to a low-carbon economy. With this in mind we need to consider the impact of climate change in our decision making. This is why we are sponsors of the fourth Climate Finance Week Ireland 2021.

Climate change mitigation project, Project Drawdown, has pointed to food waste reduction as the number one solution to tackle climate change. Since 2018, AIB has partnered with FoodCloud, a non-profit social enterprise tackling the twin issues of food waste and food insecurity by redistributing surplus food from the food industry to their network of charity and community partners. FoodCloud has helped ensure more than 100 million meals have gone to people and not to waste. During the first three years of the partnership 6,300 tonnes of surplus food were redistributed – the equivalent of 15.1 million meals and 20,353 tonnes of CO2-eq avoided. In Feb 2021 AIB committed a further €1.5m to support FoodCloud for another three years.

AIB has supported GAA in Ireland for over 30 years currently backing both Club and County championships. We are proud to continue to support the Club Championships across football, hurling and camogie. The AIB GAA Club Championships, provides an opportunity for the thousands of players, coaches and volunteers who enable the playing and development of GAA nationwide to shine, as they seek All-Ireland Champions status for their clubs and communities.
Grow it Yourself (GIY)
AIB signed up to partner with GIY in the GROW Circle in 2020. GIY is a social enterprise that supports people around the world to live happier, healthier and more sustainable lives by growing some of their own food at home, school, work and in the community.

Think Tank for Action on Social Change (TASC)
AIB are very proud to support TASC where two very different communities – Phibsborough on Dublin’s Northside and the village of Ardara in West Donegal – are the first to sign up to TASC’s pioneering new People’s Transition project. It promotes a participative decision-making model that views climate action as an enabler for thriving local development, more jobs and better and healthier standards of living.
