48 More Kohl’s Store Branches Given Green Certification

Kohl’s has received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings)  certification for 48 more of its store branches. This brings the number of LEED-certified Kohl’s stores up to 432. That is 37% of their 1,160 stores.

Stores that qualify for this certification include Energy Star certification, commitment to green power, waste recycling, water-saving plumbing fixtures and participation in green cleaning and sustainable purchasing practices, according to Kohl’s.

Kohl’s is clearly making a significant effort to improve the sustainability of their buildings, as is IKEA, who is on quite a roll as well. This is good for the environment, their bottom line, and brand perception. Kohl’s is emerging as an environmentally conscious company.

Don’t you just love win-win-win situations like these?
