UPDATE: Patagonia To Receive Property Tax Abatements For LEED Gold Certified Service Center!
In December I wrote about the distribution center that Patagonia built in Reno, Nevada. Well, for their efforts, Patagonia is receiving property tax abatements from the Nevada Commission on Economic Development of 50 percent over the next 10 years for the expansion of its distribution center. The distribution center is the first building in Nevada to achieve the LEED gold certification level.
"These green initiatives are part of Patagonia's philosophy. Doing the right things in business that sustain, not deplete, our environment are at the very core of our company." --Dave Abeloe, Patagonia Distribution Center Director.
