Akamai planting a seed on World Earth Day

Great initiatives start small.

An email from our CEO and Founder Tom Leighton, circulated to all staff on World Earth Day communicating the recent environmental achievements of the company, was followed by an email circulated in Australia & New Zealand with a simple suggestion - any time a staff member buys lunch in a plastic or styrofoam container, they should contribute 50 cents or $1 to an honesty jar, which will be donated to 'Clean Up Australia Day' initiatives.

 

This small gesture was promptly followed by management endorsement that the company will match dollar for dollar for all donations.

 

Akamai, the leader in application delivery, security and DDoS mitigation, is showing its commitment to social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
