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!

Ann watched too much TV as a kid. This admission and her passion for creativity and media still drive her as Adobe’s CMO and are reflected in Adobe’s groundbreaking marketing campaigns. Creativity is only half the equation, as under Ann’s leadership, Adobe’s marketing organization has pioneered the shift to digital — deploying a comprehensive set of digital marketing solutions, establishing an insight-driven culture, and setting a template for marketing’s strategic impact on business. Prior to Adobe, Ann spent 20 years building the Intel brand as a VP of Marketing. Ann serves on the boards of Mattel and the Ad Council. In 2015, Ad Age named Ann to The Creativity 50, a list honoring the most creative people of the year. Despite all this, she still watches too much TV.

If Ann were not at Adobe, she’d be a roadie for a band.
