Adobe Systems are doing their bit for the planet by introducing 20 Windspire wind turbines at the San José HQ.

"Adobe estimates that it can get about 2,500 kWh per year per turbine," the company notes.

"Comparatively speaking, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that a typical U.S. home consumes ~11,000 kWh per year. So these turbines, in the aggregate, provide enough electricity to power about 5 typical U.S. homes."

As part of Adobe's Corporate social responsibility statement, the company insists it is committed to conserving natural resources and minimising impact on the environment, actively implementing measures to increase efficiency, conserve energy and water, improve air quality, and reduce waste.

"We have many initiatives related to environmental sustainability, and we are particularly proud of the results of our office building operations, waste management, and product packaging programs," Adobe adds.
