SAN RAMON, CA, March 26th, 2010 — Faronics, a global leader in system control and computer energy management solutions, is proud to announce that for the second year in a row, it has been certified as carbon neutral. The accreditation, awarded by Offsetters, a Vancouver based carbon offset company, demonstrates Faronics’ continued commitment to the proactive management and effective control of the environmental impact of all of its business activities. Faronics surpassed its original goal of decreasing its footprint by 5% this year and achieved a 17% reduction.
