San Francisco Mayor Signs Green Building Legislation into Law at Adobe
On Friday, February 18, 2011, San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee signed into effect a new law that aims to improve energy efficiency in existing buildings, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy costs. Mayor Lee chose Adobe’s 601 Townsend building in San Francisco as the backdrop for this news because of Adobe’s proven track record in sustainability. 601 Townsend is the oldest LEED-certified platinum green building in the world. Today, Adobe’s LEED certifications total 10—with 9 of these being platinum. We are extremely honored and proud to have hosted Mayor Lee for this momentous event.
