We think pink and green go beautifully together, don’t you?
T-Mobile has announced plans to power its headquarters with 100 percent renewable energy by 2021. The company’s home base, a nearly 900,000-square-foot buildinglocated in Bellevue, Washington, will soon be part of the Puget Sound Energy’s Green Direct program, which provides companies access to wind and solar renewable energy sources.
Earlier this year, T-Mobile, which has been recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency and Center for Resource Solutions for its commitment to green power, joined RE100, a group of 100 (technically, there are 153 members) influential businesses that have committed to operating solely on renewable energy. Other companies include Nike and Ikea.
“At T-Mobile, we really mean it when we say we’re going to clean up wireless for good, and in this case that means cleaning up our impact on the planet by making a big commitment to renewable energy,” John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile, said in a press release.
According to Solar Power World, this move will also save T-Mobile millions of dollars each year in energy costs.
