This wind farm is just one of many environmental sustainability initiatives at Synopsys.
Though we lease the majority of our facilities, we have a goal to reduce our owned facilities’ impacts, and work to integrate high standards of environmental performance from design through use. For new building construction and renovation, we seek certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
We will look to landlords and developers to embrace renewable energy initiatives, and plan to establish leased space criteria and expectations. To that end, we signed onto CEBA’s Commercial Real Estate Principles as part of a drive to increase renewable procurement in real estate.
In 2021, we achieved CarbonNeutral® company certification across our global operations for the third year running, offsetting approximately 47,000 MTCO2e through a portfolio of high-quality, verifiable renewable energy certificates (RECs).
In partnership with Synopsys IT, we began a process of closing 38 inefficient on-premise data centers and transitioning to energy-efficient assets and more efficient co-location data center providers.
