Kohl’s Earns 2014 ENERGY STAR® Partner Of The Year – Sustained Excellence Award For Continued Leadership In Energy Efficiency

Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) will be recognized today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a recipient of the 2014 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for the company’s continued leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency initiatives. An EPA ENERGY STAR member since 1998, Kohl’s currently has more than 860 ENERGY STAR-certified locations, more than 70 percent of Kohl’s stores nationwide and more than any other U.S. retailer to date. In 2013 alone, 69 Kohl’s stores received ENERGY STAR certification, surpassing the company’s goal to reach 800 certified locations by 2015. Award winners are selected from the 16,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program.

“Kohl’s is proud to be a leader in energy-efficient practices and set a positive example in how we design and operate our facilities,” said Ken Bonning, Kohl’s senior executive vice president. “Not only do energy-efficient buildings reduce our carbon footprint, investments in features like lighting upgrades and solar installations make smart business sense. We continuously challenge ourselves to do more. This award from EPA acknowledges our ongoing efforts to conserve resources through the use of technology and valuable partnerships."

Kohl’s uses the ENERGY STAR portfolio manager to track energy performance of all facilities, assess opportunities for enhanced energy performance and implement best practices. The company also constructs new stores with the intent to pursue ENERGY STAR’s “Designed to Earn” designation. These stores are eligible to earn ENERGY STAR certification after maintaining superior energy performance for one year in operation. In addition to this year’s award, Kohl’s received a Sustained Excellence Award in 2012 and 2013, as well as Partner of the Year Awards in 2010 and 2011.

“Kohl’s has earned EPA’s highest ENERGY STAR award – the 2014 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award – because of their unwavering commitment to helping consumers become increasingly more energy efficient,” said EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe.
