Workday offsets 100% of its electricity use!!!

Fantastic news!

Workday has renewed and extended its commitment to clean energy and to making SaaS the truly green alternative by offsetting 100% of its electricity use of its office buildings and development data centers. To achieve this, we have partnered with Renewable Choice to purchase over 1 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of renewable energy credits (RECs).

Our purchase of 1,300,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of renewable energy credits has an impact that is similar to:
- Planting 4,986 mature trees
- Not driving 1,484,518 miles in an average car

For this commitment, we are (soon) registered with the EPA as a leading partner and a 100% Green Power Purchaser.

This is an awesome commitment by Workday as a company. It shows our true leadership and makes a tangible impact. And our customers do not only get the green benefits of more efficient data centers, but know that all of the electricity consumed is now 100% offset as well.

Thanks to everyone at Workday for making this possible.
