We’re proud to announce that Adobe’s Seattle office facility, located in the Fremont area of Seattle, has been certified at platinum level under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program of the U.S. Green Building Council. This accolade, the highest honor under the LEED program, marks Adobe’s 11th LEED certification overall – nine at platinum level, two at gold – and furthers Adobe’s reputation as a corporate leader in green and sustainable operations.
The path to certification included programs to improve energy efficiency, reduce waste and optimize water usage. Specific improvements included installing an EvapoTranspiration (ET) Controller to monitor irrigation efficiency and water use; a software system to allow for Web-based and real-time energy monitoring of the building; and replacement of incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs to reduce energy use
I’d like to congratulate and commend the Seattle facilities team and our partners at building management firm Cushman & Wakefield who, together, successfully undertook the two-year project to certify the Seattle site – along with Adobe Seattle employees overall, whose efforts to create more sustainable, “greener” operations helped to achieve this important recognition. We hope our efforts inspire other organizations that lease or own properties and want to make a difference by conserving and/or recycling precious resources.
