Kohl's Department Stores has received a 2007 Green Power Leadership Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The award recognizes companies that purchase its electricity from renewable energy sources. Kohl's annually purchases more than 201 million kWh from renewable sources.
‘Pursuing renewable energy resources is a priority for Kohl's, so receiving EPA recognition as a leader in green power purchases is a real honor,’ says Ken Bonning, Kohl's executive vice president of logistics. ‘Our green power purchases coupled with solar installations are two ways we're working to increase energy efficiencies and demonstrate environmental stewardship.’
Kohl's is headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wis., and operates 834 stores in 46 states.
