Green Workplace

Our headquarters in Palo Alto embeds the concept of sustainable design into every facet – from the building materials selected to the use of lighting to the landscaping that surrounds us. We want to practice what we preach, and that’s why environmental conservation is more than one of our program areas: it’s the guiding principle in the structure, function and design of our LEED® Platinum workplace. Our workplace earned the 2010 AIA Santa Clara Valley Merit Award and the 2009 San Jose Business Journal Green Project of the Year – Private. Our workplace helps demonstrate the value of sustainability.
