Intel Ireland wins the Green Large Organisation Award at annual Green Awards

On Thursday April 11th the Green Awards 2014 took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Dublin, Burlington Road before an audience of 450 representatives from across Ireland, who came together to celebrate the best the industry has to offer. With 23 awards presented to worthy winners and over 170 entries in the awards, there was plenty to celebrate on the night.

On the night Intel Ireland picked up the ‘Green Large Organisation Award’ for our comprehensive environmental amagement systems inlcuding our waste management  and recycling initiatives at the Leixlip campus. The Green Large Organisation Award recognises an organisation of +250 employees that can demonstrate a ground-up best environmental practice in all aspects of running a large business.
