A new feature from Apple published Tuesday celebrates 40 years of community at its Cork campus in Ireland.
The piece contains interviews with staff members who described the Cork campus as a family, with some employees having been employed at the base for over 30 years.
The story also highlights initiatives like the Cork LGBTQ Diversity Network Association, and the upcoming Accessibility DNA, which help to connect employees with "shared interests, backgrounds, and values."
The report also states that Apple's Giving program has helped support 400 registered charities in Ireland since 2015, and that 43% of its Cork employees have participated in volunteering activities this year alone.
Apple was also keen to highlight the environmental impact (or lack thereof) of its Cork Campus, noting the facility runs on 100 percent clean energy, featuring 200 solar panels and a rainwater harvesting system, as well as a Zero Waste to Landfill policy.
