lynda.com recently earned Green Business certification from the Green Business Program (GBP) of Santa Barbara County. The largest company ever to be certified by the program, we’ve taken critical steps to reduce the environmental impact of our Carpinteria campus. Some of our efforts include:
“As we continue to grow, lynda.com is committed to improving its sustainability and setting an example in the community,” says Jacqueline Burge, director of facilities at lynda.com. “Our campus is in such a beautiful setting, and as a company we are striving for continuous improvement in our impact on the environment.”
The GBP of Santa Barbara County aims to recognize, through certification, local businesses that go beyond required measures to serve as models of sustainable business. Earning a certificate from the program means that a company has made a commitment to the community to go above and beyond typical green measures and stand on the cutting edge of sustainable business practice.
“We are proud to have lynda.com join the ranks of our certified green businesses in Santa Barbara County,” said Frances Gilliland, program director at the GBP. “Environmental sustainability is so obviously an important part of the corporate culture at lynda.com. Management and staff have undertaken significant efforts at their facilities, particularly in the areas of ridesharing and water conservation. We look forward to working with them well into the future, and look to them as both an example and resource for other local businesses working with the Green Business Program.”
