As part of its support for initiatives in the areas of volunteering, community involvement and environmental protection, the company each year selects a charity for Intel employees to dedicate their combined efforts towards.
“All of us at Global Action Plan are delighted to be Intel’s signature charity for 2022. Intel has already provided valuable support to our work by sponsoring the ‘Sustainable Kildare’ initiative, and with their support over the coming year we can really grow our activities, assisting communities as they take action to protect the environment and our climate,” said Hans Zomer, CEO of Global Action Plan.
Through the partnership, Intel employees will volunteer their time and raise funds in support of Global Action Plan (GAP). Funds raised will go towards a carbon offsetting programme, through GAP’s tree planting partners Hometree and Tree Nation, and Global Action Plan’s ‘Nature Explorer’ social inclusion programme in Ballymun.
Intel employees will have the opportunity to volunteer their time to support the GAP programmes. Intel and GAP will also work together on a number of events and initiative throughout the year, such as the ‘Demystifying Carbon’ workshop organised by GAP for Intel staff, which will take place in early February.
“At Global Action Plan, we take pride in our ability to work with people from very different backgrounds, supporting them to discover their power as citizens, and their impact as change makers. This partnership with Intel will be extremely important, as we seek to support more communities in taking evidence based decisions that help bring lasting changes to their individual, and our collective, environmental impact,” concluded Global Action Plan CEO Hans Zomer.
