Energy

As part of our initiative to reduce Greenhouse Gases we have upgraded our HVAC systems, increased temperature in our datacenters, converted to LED lighting, and now use 45% renewable and solar energy.

Water

We understand that clean water is scarce and need to do our part to reduce water consumption. From installing low-flow water fixtures to improving the efficiency of our landscaping sprinkler system, we know that every drop counts.

Waste

We purchase products made from recycled materials and use recyclable packaging to conserve natural resources. Additionally we have reduced paper usage and ended the use of 140,000 single-use plastic water bottles per year at our headquarters.

Product Environmental Impact

We develop, manufacture, and market products that are safe for their intended use, efficient in their use of energy, protective of the environment, and that can be reused, recycled or disposed of safely.

Employee Awareness & Advocacy

We are educating our employees on actions they can take to reduce their environmental footprint via an online employee learning portal as well as through unifying events such as Earth Day and the Annual Silicon Valley Bike to Work Day.

Supply Chain

We ensure our major suppliers are adopting environmental policies that reflect our shared values and together we regularly review these initiatives to reduce negative impact on the environment in the production of our products.
