Who We Are

Certa was born out of the confluence of numerous successful Irish energy brands. Across our combined footprint, we service commercial, industrial, residential and mobility sectors. 

We Are A Part Of DCC plc

DCC plc is one of Ireland’s most successful organisations, operating in various sectors including Energy, Technology and Healthcare. With annual sales of over €18 billion, and operations in 21 countries spanned over 3 continents, DCC employs more than 15,400 people around the globe.

Being a part of our parent company means that while we retain the agility and local resonance of a smaller organisation, we also benefit from the strength and scale of our parent company. 

What unites each of these brands is the powerful entrepreneurial spirit, a culture of high performance and agility and is underpinned by exceptionally strong customer service.

The essence and strengths of these brands and what made them strong in the past is now embedded in the DNA of our new entity, Certa.

Energy Forward

Our purpose is distilled into these two words- Energy Forward. For us, it embodies the alchemy of progress, momentum, agility and entrepreneurial spirit.

Our vision is to become Ireland’s most exciting energy company, connecting people and businesses to the most progressive energy solutions available.

Our Purpose Inspires Us

A purpose and vision must come from within. It should arise from the heart of an organisation and should embody its culture. Else, it is neither felt nor believed. Our purpose is not just words on a page; it is the basis of the products we sell and the experience we deliver to our customers.

At Certa, we continuously seek ways to build a better world through the power of energy. We believe that what we do matters and that anything is possible when you’re motivated by a strong progressive spirit.

From our call centres to our MD, our depots and our drivers, we keep pushing the boundaries to reimage what’s possible; for each other, for our families, our communities, and our planet.
