The company is committed to robust sustainability targets and Hourdajian found significant lighting, HVAC, data center and equipment upgrades that would help the adidas Group meet many of its goals. Working with the Energy Trust of Oregon and San Diego Gas & Electric, Hourdajian identified resources, rebates and funding to support the transition to more energy efficient facilities.
