Workday offsets 100% electricity consumption for 2012

As in prior years, Workday is proud to announce that we have fulfilled our commitment for 2012 to offset 100% of the electricity use in our office buildings and data centers across the world. We have completed a data collection process and calculated an estimated electricity consumption of 14,100,000 kWhs for the calendar year. This is more than double the amount we consumed for 2011 and nicely reflects the fantastic growth we have as a company. We have purchased Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from our partner Renewable Choice Energy which is equivalent in impact to taking 1,400 cars of the road for the year or planting about 64,000 mature trees. We also have committed to buying RECs for 2013 representing our increased electricity usage.

A heartfelt “Thank You” goes from the Green Team to everyone in Executive Management, Infrastructure, Facilities, IT and Finance who helped in the data collection and REC purchase process. 

Sustainability is truly valued at Workday!
