Nature and Community Merge at New Subaru Campus
By Julia Lowndes
Environmentally friendly practices are gaining traction in the corporate world but being green is more than a trend for companies like Subaru. Since relocating their national headquarters from Cherry Hill to Camden, New Jersey, Subaru has joined forces with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) to design a corporate campus that reflects their long-term commitment to a healthier Earth.
Unveiled in 2018, the new headquarters is a symbol of progress for both Subaru and Camden. The move combines four regional Subaru facilities and unites nearly 700 employees under one roof for the first time, bringing a deeper sense of community to the company and opportunities for growth to Camden.
To usher in this era of change, the Subaru team invited PHS to take an advisory role in planning their sustainable landscape. As a long-time corporate sponsor of PHS’s flagship event, the Philadelphia Flower Show, Subaru entrusted the PHS Public Landscapes team to select diverse perennials, hardwoods, and grass species that would ensure a lively campus year-round.
