We are committed to making a positive impact on our communities by creating everyday opportunities to make sustainable living commonplace for everyone in Ireland. In 2022, we:
- Continued our sponsorship of Dublin, Mullingar and Cork Pride with 95 employees and their families taking part in the Dublin parade marching alongside our electric vehicles and e-trikes on behalf of An Post. We followed up with a community set-up in
Merrion Square to welcome families to join in on the fun.
- Promoted inclusivity by removing titles from our products and services where possible. For financial services products that require titles (e.g. State Savings products, foreign exchange
cash and postal money orders) we are working to include an Mx option by the end of 2023.
- Raised the Pride and Transgender flags on the GPO.
- Launched a set of five special stamps celebrating Irish Women in Sport for International Women’s Day 2022. As well as celebrating the outstanding achievements of Irish sporting legends Sonia O’Sullivan, Ellen Keane, Rachael Blackmore, Katie Taylor, Kellie Harrington and the Irish Women’s Hockey Team, the stamps provided a platform for a wider focus on women in sport and how we can better encourage more women to get Involved in, and to stay involved in, sporting activities. The stamps received worldwide accolades for the subject matter as well as the quality of the design by leading Irish agency, Unthink.
- Continued our tailored education training programmes for our Postmasters, focussing on the skills required for retail operations and postal distribution.
- Continued to offer free delivery of packages containing certain literature, articles adapted and material specially designed or adapted for use by the blind.
