Going Green: Solar Panels Installed on Buildings

As part of its ongoing commitment to being an environmentally responsibile organization, ESRI has installed rooftop solar panels on three buildings here at the main campus in Redlands. Panels on two existing buildings went operational in December; the third building to have the panels is our new corporate headquarters currently under construction. The solar energy system will reduce global carbon emissions by more than one million pounds annually, the equivalent of planting 70,000 mature trees. Read the article.

In line with its goal to be carbon neutral, ESRI maintains a fleet of electric vehicles and reduces cooling costs with strategically planted shade trees. GIS software donated by ESRI is used internationally for myriad conservation projects, from mapping animal and plant habitats to measuring human impact on the ecosystem.
