Adobe’s Energy-Efficient Headquarters Saves $1.2 Million Annually

When San Jose-based software firm Adobe Systems hired Cushman & Wakefield in 2001, Adobe wasn’t looking to go green – it just wanted to cut energy consumption to save money, the Monterey Herald reports. As a result of the work, Adobe was the first in the world to attain LEED’s platinum certification, the highest level of environmental efficiency possible.

Cushman & Wakefield identified 64 ways to cut waste. Among the changes implemented was the replacement of every light bulb in the company’s three buildings with the most energy-efficient type available, the installation of motion sensors at each desk that turned off lights and monitors when spaces were unoccupied, the modification of the fan in the parking garage with a $100 gadget that starts only during peak commute times, and installing a waterless urinal system, for which the company commissioned the design of special biofilters.

Adobe’s investment of $1.4 million saves the company $1.2 million annually and brings in almost $400,000 per year in energy rebates from PG&E and the city, according to Cushman & Wakefield.
