The Remarkable Rye River

Since first establishing operations at the Leixlip campus in 1989 Intel has been aware of the rich biodiversity contained within parts of our site and also the significance of the Rye water and its Valley. Intel has a long standing commitment to the monitoring of the river through the funding of detailed annual reports that provide extensive resources on features of the Rye. This detailed monitoring of the River Rye, one of the longest running continuous freshwater assessments of salmonid populations, reached an important milestone in 2012 as it was the 20th year of reporting. To mark this occasion, and to share the wealth of unique information obtained through many years of monitoring, Intel commissioned a special publication, The Remarkable River Rye.

Supporting Charities

Each year Intel Ireland selects two signature charities in order to give employees the opportunity to dedicate their efforts towards providing volunteer time and funds, raised through specially organised activities, to these chosen organisations. Last year, Parkinson’s Association of Ireland and Dogs for Disabled were selected and employees volunteered over 89,000 hours of their time and raised over €75,000 for these charities. For 2017, the selected charities are Aoibheann’s Pink Tie and Jigsaw.

Matching Grants

The Intel Involved Matching Grant program awards cash grants to schools, charities and non-profit organisations where Intel employees volunteer their time. The grants are accrued based on the number of hours that are volunteered by Intel employees at organisations which are registered as part of the program. For every one hour that an employee volunteers the Intel Foundation grants $10 to their school, charity or non-profit organisation. As of 2017, more than €3.65 million has been donated to charities, schools, sports clubs, social initiatives and community schemes across Ireland. Click here to read more.

The Pride of Place competition encourages ideas, projects and initiatives put forward by community groups in the areas local to the Intel campus in Leixlip, Co. Kildare.

In May 2017, the Pride of Place competition continued with the chance for local community groups to submit their proposals for projects that could help improve their own organisations while also benefiting the local communities. Six grants of €5,000 each were awarded to the winning organisations.

Embracing Biodiversity at Intel

At Intel Ireland, we aim to be a leader when it comes to voluntary on-site biodiversity action in Ireland. To date, we have enhanced, restored and created biodiverse habitats in and around our campus and ensured continual improvement by embedding biodiversity into our Environmental Management System. We have amplified the impact of these initiatives beyond the limits of our site by supporting local partnerships for nature and engaging employees in efforts to support local wildlife. Click here to view the 'Embracing Biodiversity at Intel' publication.
