Red Hat Continues Global Expansion, Achieves LEED Certification

Stocks in this article: RHT

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced continued global expansion with new and expanded facilities around the world. Red Hat also announced that its facilities in Raleigh, N.C., Westford, Mass., and Beijing are expected to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, highlighting the company’s commitment to building environmentally sound offices. Today, Red Hat has more than 80 offices worldwide with more than 5,700 employees.

LEED certification for Red Hat’s facilities in Raleigh, Westford, and Beijing are in concert with Red Hat’s Sustainability Program, through which Red Hat aims to serve as a catalyst for environmental stewardship to protect and enhance the quality of life for current and future generations of the company and the communities in which Red Hat conducts business. LEED-certified buildings are designed to conserve energy and water, reduce waste, reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions, and be healthier and safer for occupants. Facilities are a core component of Red Hat’s Sustainability Program, and while Red Hat seeks LEED Certification for each of its large expansion projects, the company strives to infuse every new Red Hat office, regardless of size, with sustainable attributes designed to minimize the company’s impact on the environment.

Red Hat’s recent global facility expansions include:

Raleigh, N.C.

Completed in June 2013, Red Hat’s Raleigh-based headquarters has more than 365,000 square feet with the ability to seat more than 1,000 associates. Named Red Hat Tower, this facility is seeking LEED Gold certification. This recognition would make it one of the largest and most highly rated LEED buildings in downtown Raleigh.

Red Hat Tower features training rooms with movable walls that can host up to 160 people; an outdoor work space and patio; a community space with a cafeteria; an on-site fitness facility and gaming area; open, collaborative work spaces; a range of windows with natural light; enclaves, some of which feature traditional meeting space designs and others that include lounge seating and high tables; conference rooms equipped with video conferencing and openUC, Red Hat’s new open source phone and collaboration system; as well as pantry areas stocked with snacks and refreshments.
