Google work hard to create a healthy and productive work environment for their employees. To do that, they approach buildings as living systems, designing in natural light and clean air, designing out harmful man-made chemicals, and using natural resources more intelligently. Their approach goes hand-in-hand with their commitment to designing buildings that are sustainable for local and global ecosystems.
Google put all building materials and products through a rigorous screening process to determine which adhere to their healthy building standard. As a result they have eliminated many harmful chemicals from their buildings and actively seek to procure sustainable materials that are locally manufactured, high in recycled content, and biodegradable.
