With Climate Week NYC 2017 underway in New York, Vince Digneo, Sustainability Strategist, Adobe, blogs on the company’s efforts to reduce its emissions in India and the benefits for the local community.

Adobe’s Bangalore site is going solar. We recently signed a 2.5-megawatt, grid-scale, solar power purchase agreement (PPA) for our Bangalore office, which will provide enough power to cover our annual energy demand.

Adobe is proud to be among the first US-headquartered technology companies in India to have a facility powered entirely by renewable energy, an important step toward our commitment of sourcing 100% renewables globally.

WHY THIS MATTERS

Bangalore is our first major purchase of renewable energy, and while it’s a small step toward our end goal, it’s a milestone. The purchase moves Adobe closer to our RE100 goal—a promise we made in 2015, along with nearly one hundred of our peers and with guidance from The Climate Group—of reaching 100% renewable electricity for all of our operations and digital delivery of our products.
