Background
Google is a global technology leader focused on improving the ways people connect with information. Google’s innovations in web search and advertising have made our website a top Internet property and brand one of the most recognized in the world.

When it comes to greening our office buildings, we apply the same focus that we do for any of our products: put the user first. We want to create the healthiest work environments possible where Googlers around the world can thrive and innovate. From concept through design, construction and operations, we create workplaces that function like living and breathing systems by optimizing access to nature, clean air and daylight, while also minimizing our energy and water use, and waste reduction.

As a Best Buildings Challenge partner, Google is looking forward to pushing the envelope in how we can continually improve the environmental performance of our growing building portfolio in CA.

"When it comes to greening our office buildings, we apply the same focus that we use for any of our products: put the user first. Improving the environmental performance of our buildings not only helps us reduce waste, save energy and water and improve indoor air quality, but also positively impacts the health and productivity of our employees around the world. Through our early participation in the California Best Buildings Challenge, we hope to inspire companies of all shapes and sizes to implement innovative approaches to reducing their environmental footprint,” said David Radcliffe, Vice President of Real Estate and Workplace Services at Google Inc.
