Seeing Green: Adobe Ranks #7 in Newsweek’s Green Rankings

Adobe’s corporate social responsibility programs – which include everything from our conservation efforts to how we contribute to the communities where we do business – are something we take quite a bit of pride in.

That’s why this week we were thrilled to learn that Adobe moved up to number seven on Newsweek’s 2010 Green Rankings – an annual list of the top 500 most environmentally conscious U.S. companies.  Out of a possible score of 100, Adobe’s Green Rankings green score came in at an impressive 94.15. Other well known companies in the top 10 include Dell, HP, Intel, Johnson & Johnson and Nike.

Newsweek teamed up with three leading environmental research organizations to compile the most comprehensive rankings possible. To view the Newsweek Green Rankings in their entirety, click here: Green Rankings: U.S. Companies.

Environmental responsibility is a priority for Adobe and is part of the fabric of our corporate culture. We are proud of our multiple US Green Building Council LEED® certifications and of our continued efforts to lead in the adoption of green technologies for our building operations [See recent post: Fired Up About Fuel Cells].

Thanks are in order for Adobe employees worldwide who have helped us achieve this recognition through their ideas, ongoing participation in sustainability programs and commitment to going green!

Fuel Cells at San Jose Headquarters

Fired Up About Fuel Cells

Adobe has made another major stride in the greening of its San Jose corporate headquarters.  Earlier this month, we officially flipped the switch on 12 new Bloom Energy fuel cells installed on the fifth floor of Adobe’s West Tower parking garage.

Fuel cells operate a lot like big batteries. They convert air and biogas into electricity, and produce power in a cleaner, more economical way than electricity generated from the power grid.  Adobe’s “Bloom boxes” are expected to generate approximately 30 percent of the energy required to power the three San Jose headquarters towers. Using the fuel cells, Adobe expects to reduce its carbon footprint by approximately 121.5 million pounds over 10 years, which is equivalent to taking 1,810 compact cars off the road annually.

Adobe is the largest commercial fuel cell installation to date for Bloom.  See the press release here.
