This month, Symantec is celebrating Earth Day by exploring our commitment to environmental responsibility. Today we hear from Kelly Shea, Symantec's global sustainability program manager, on the successful LEED certification of our 20th office facility.


With buildings accounting for 40 percent of global energy use and over one third of global greenhouse gas emissions, we recognize our responsibility to play a role in decreasing these impacts.

We are therefore very proud to announce that we have just LEED-certified our 20th facility! This certification, for one of our Mountain View, CA buildings, is part of Symantec’s ongoing goal to obtain LEED and Energy Star certifications for all owned or long-leased facilities. This 20th certification brings our green building square footage to approximately 2.5 million square feet (79 percent of our owned real estate portfolio) and 59 percent of our owned or long-leased facilities.
