All Intel Ireland facilities have to meet stringent regulations set down by the Irish Government's environmental watchdog, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Intel Ireland has an excellent record of compliance with the EPA's licensing regime. Our air emissions are consistently 75 to 95% below our licence limits.
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised quality system for environmental management in industry and Leixlip is the first Intel site worldwide that is ISO 14001 accredited. Intel Ireland also adopts a stringent recycling programme; the site recycles more than 80% of the non–hazardous waste it generates.
Since 1994, Intel has been a sponsor of conservation measures to protect the River Rye, which flows through the back of the Leixlip campus.
