Kohl's Earns Energy Star Label at 50 Stores

Kohl's Department Stores has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star label for 50 of its stores nationwide, marking the largest group of retail buildings (non-supermarket) to earn the label in Energy Star history, according to a July 31 press release.

The Energy Star program designates commercial buildings and industrial plants that rate in the top 25 percent of facilities in the nation for energy efficiency. Kohl's stores earning the designation are in Colorado (7), Illinois (14), Minnesota (8), New York (12), Utah (4), and Wisconsin (5).

The company incorporates energy efficient systems and practices, such as centralized energy management control systems; occupancy sensor lighting for stockrooms, break rooms and offices; and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, into all of its buildings.

Beginning this fall, Kohl's will pursue Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for all stores built from the ground up.

Kohl's operates 957 stores in 47 states and will celebrate the opening of its 1,000th store in the fall.
