Apple Plans Show Deep Commitment to Cork
Cork Chamber, the voice of business in Cork as today welcomed Apple’s announcement of its plans to expand its Cork campus.
Conor Healy, CEO of Cork Chamber said “The plans submitted by Apple are another show of the company’s deep commitment to Cork. Moreover, they show huge ambition and leadership, with the planned extension to run entirely on renewable energy and incorporate a ‘commute hub’ designed to encourage active and sustainable travel. In the wake of Cork’s selection to be a carbon neutral city by 2030, it is clear that the this level of ambition and action across the business community will be essential in achieving this goal.”
“Apple is a much-celebrated and flagship investor in our region. It has played a key role in the growth of the region’s technology sector encouraging both indigenous industry and FDI investment. Key to continuing to attract investment into Cork is delivery of plans containted in Housing for All, and those for sustainable transport, including light rail, suburban rail enhancements, bus connects and cycle networks contained in the Cork Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy (CMASTS).”
