CA Technologies developed, owns and occupies a 200,000-square-foot SICI Green Building (India’s equivalent of LEED-certified) in Hyderabad, India. In addition, approximately 470,000 square feet of our office space across the U.S. is in LEED-certified buildings or under a green lease.
We continue to work with our global real estate service providers to incorporate sustainability elements into all new leases, including provisions requiring the use of efficient and regularly serviced building systems, the use of cleaning materials that are Green Seal-certified, the inclusion of building-recycling programs, the use of lighting sensors in common areas and the use of landscape irrigation systems that utilize rain sensor devices to minimize water use.
In 2015, CA Technologies facilities in Framingham, Massachusetts, and in Islandia, New York, were awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR. This voluntary program identifies and promotes energy-efficient products and buildings to reduce energy consumption, improve energy security and reduce pollution by promoting products and buildings that meet the highest energy-efficiency standards. Our Framingham office achieved a verified score of 97, while our Islandia office scored 92.
