Deckers Outdoor Corp., a global leader in designing, marketing, and distributing innovative footwear, apparel and accessories, today announced that the company’s corporate headquarters in Goleta has achieved LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

LEED Certification is awarded for buildings that are energy efficient and environmentally sustainable in design and operation.

“Our commitment to the environment is reflected in our new headquarters,” said Angel Martinez, president, chief executive officer and chair of the board. “Achieving LEED certification confirms the considerable effort we put into creating a healthy atmosphere for our employees through a building that is not only an attractive place to work, but also one that is supported by sustainable materials and systems.

We’re pleased that our beautiful building ranks among the best for its friendliness to the environment and we’re thrilled to share this attractive facility with the thousands of consumers who will pass through our doors every year.”
