Open-source software provider Red Hat aims to earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certifications for its corporate buildings in the U.S. and abroad.
Red Hat adopted sustainable measures into building expansion projects with the intent of reducing environmental impact and improving the quality of life for workers and communities, the company said Aug. 6.
“Our recent expansions in North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific and Latin America illustrate our continued commitment to successfully serving our global customers, partners and communities as interest in open hybrid cloud solutions grows,” said Charlie Peters, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Red Hat.
According to the company, LEED-certified buildings work to address energy consumption and carbon emission issues.
New Red Hat global facilities include sites in Westford, Mass.; Beijing, China; Brno, Czech Republic and Santiago, Chile.
