adobe, the famous software maker, has cemented its unique place among software companies (and other industries also). they have gone one step ahead in greening their building.

as per the merc report,
Most eco-friendly structures are built ``green,'' but Adobe decided to turn its three existing towers downtown -- ranging in age from three to 10 years and totaling almost 1 million square feet of offices and 940,000 square feet of garage space -- into an environmentally friendly campus.

going green is not only cool, earth friendly, environmentally safe but also can be a money saver.
Adobe spent $1.2 million to retrofit the three buildings, constructed in 1996, 1998 and 2003. To date, the company has received $350,000 in rebates from Pacific Gas & Electric, the state and the city. And the annual savings in reduced energy and water usage is $1 million.
``The simple payback is 10 1/2 months and the return on investment is 115 percent,'' said George Denise, of Cushman & Wakefield, who manages Adobe's properties.

will our own legends wipro's, tcs's, infosys, etc emulate and overtake adobe. india is a country where true development is the need of the hour and by reducing energy usage thro environmentally friendly buildings, india can avoid building polluting coal power plants, destructive hydel plants and thereby preserve our crucial ecology for our future generations.
