Akamai is improving efficiency and reducing consumption in our offices through sustainable building practices.
Akamai’s ongoing effort to minimize our environmental impact extends to improving efficiency and reducing consumption in our offices. In recent years, we have successfully completed a renovation project for our Cambridge northern California offices with the goal of obtaining LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification to demonstrate commitment to best-of-breed sustainable building practices. Required elements for LEED certification that we’ve implemented include (but are not limited to):
Energy efficient lighting, appliances and heating and cooling systems
Use of recycled materials in construction
Office and construction-waste recycling programs
Office furniture reuse/donation
The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally-accepted benchmark for sustainable buildings, and all of Akamai’s current and future projects will be built to these standards.
