Living in the Bay Area we are the hub of technology, but how can technology help us become more sustainable? This month, we explore the unique opportunities that tech provides to us to become more efficient and more environmentally responsible, all while saving a tremendous amounts of money.
November’s speaker, Peter Perrault from NetApp, better known as the “Green Giant” is well versed in how to overcome environmental challenges and turn them into real savings. In 2008, “PG&E presented NetApp with a rebate of $1.4 million under PG&E's Non-Residential New Construction Program, which encourages PG&E's commercial, industrial, high-technology, and agricultural customers to implement energy-efficient building and process design and construction” (Netapp.com).
Peter heads NetApp’s Global Sustainability Program and has extensive experience in sustainability and environmental economics. In addition to leading the way in green tech he also is the co-chair of the Environment Committee for the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, an advocacy organization working to ensure economic health and a high quality of life for the entire Silicon Valley community.
