Kohl’s receives EPA Sustained Excellence in Green Power Award

Menomonee Falls, Wis. -- Kohl’s Department Stores has been recognized with a 2012 Sustained Excellence in Green Power Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This is the company’s sixth consecutive year receiving a Green Power Leadership Award.

Kohl’s purchased 1.5 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power in 2012 and generates more than 28 million kWh through its solar program, offsetting more than 100% of the company’s electricity use for the third consecutive year.

The award was presented Monday at an event held in conjunction with the 2012 Renewable Energy Markets Conference in Washington, D.C. EPA’s annual Green Power Leadership Awards recognize the country’s leading green power purchasers for their commitment and contribution to helping advance the development of the nation’s voluntary green power market.

Kohl’s purchased 1.5 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power in 2012 and generates more than 28 million kWh through its solar program, offsetting more than 100% of the company’s electricity use for the third consecutive year.

“Kohl’s takes its commitment to green power and sustainable operations seriously and has set several goals to ensure we continue to strategically advance our programs,” said John Worthington, Kohl’s chief administrative officer. “From offsetting 100% of our energy use to having 200 solar locations by 2015 to educating our partners about how to establish successful programs of their own, Kohl’s is proud to do our part to support green power use.
