  • Making snow seeded with a speck of dust to lessen the amount of water and energy consumed in the process.
  • Offsetting 100 percent of its electricity use with renewable energy from wind farms.

  • Constructing buildings that are heated and cooled by water from a nearby pond.
  • Encouraging activism through its own green website where employees have contributed $1 million to date for local environmental causes.
