Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC) is the world's largest company solely focused on raising intelligence through data warehousing, data warehouse appliances, consulting services and enterprise analytics. Teradata is in more than 60 countries and on the web at www.teradata.com. The recycling program at Teradata San Diego, located in Rancho Bernardo, has reduced the amount of material entering the landfill by 2,729.85 tons since its inception in 1994. This program has been recognized by the City of San Diego’s Recycler of the Year award and the State of California’s Waste Reduction Award Program (WRAP). This facility also participates in and has been recognized by the San Diego Gas & Electric Demand Response Program. Conservation efforts include: Paper Conservation: Teradata has diverted 1,007 tons of waste office paper from the landfill over the past 14 years, saving the equivalent of 17,119 trees and 7.5 million gallons of water that would have been required for processing raw pulp into paper. The Rancho Bernardo facility also participates in Shred-it’s paper shredding program, through which it saved the equivalent of 94 trees in 2009. Teradata was recognized in 2007 with a Certificate of Environmental Accomplishment. Metal Scrap and Other Recycling: Teradata has also diverted 891 tons of metal scrap, including light and heavy iron, electronic scrap, batteries, monitors, and circuit boards. The majority of the metal scrap generated through the Teradata San Diego location is electronic scrap. Teradata San Diego also recycles other waste streams, including aluminum cans, plastic bottles, fluorescent lamps, construction debris, and toner cartridges. Green Landscaping: Teradata’s landscapers are required to recycle all green waste generated by this facility. An arborist recycles all wood from landscaping cleanup. Irrigation controllers with integrated weather stations have been ordered to minimize the water used for irrigation. These controllers allow for different plant material and landscaping conditions to be factored into watering schedules. By minimizing watering times, Teradata hopes to reduce irrigation water consumption by up to 30 percent. The City of San Diego Water Department provided rebates that paid for the controllers. Energy Conservation: Teradata has implemented several energy conservation measures that reduce the amount of electricity, natural gas, and water resources used by the facility. These measures include the installation of a Building Automation System (BAS) to control campus lighting and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The automated system controls operation times and limits individual zone thermostatic adjustments, ensuring effective climate control without zone competition. The system also controls the activation of waterside economizers that allow Teradata to minimize compressor operating times. As a building envelope measure, specially coated glass and window treatments were installed to reduce thermal transfer. The installation of state-of-the-art lighting utilizes energy-efficient T8 fluorescent lamps, compact fluorescents and LED technology that significantly reduce energy usage. To supplement the T8 lamps, Teradata installed parabolic reflectors, deep louvers, and electronic ballasts.
