CAMPAIGN: Symantec | Environmental Sustainability


This month, Symantec is celebrating Earth Day by exploring our commitment to environmental responsibility. Previous posts have explored Symantec's commitment to LEED certification, and talked about our participation in Earth Hour. Today we hear from Kelly Shea, Symantec's sustainability program manager, on the results from Symantec's first global waste audit.


Symantec recently completed its very first set of “friendly” waste audits at local sites across the world to better understand our waste impacts. The audits are conducted according to the LEED-EBOM MRc6: Solid Waste Management standard and identify opportunities to divert waste streams from landfill and further source reduction opportunities.

By working with our office sites to analyze the source of waste impacts, we can help develop site-level strategies and initiatives that will help us meet our goal of conserving vital resources and minimizing waste at each of our locations. We conducted pilots of these waste audits in our Fiscal Year 2012, at our Mountain View and Culver City, CA locations.
