Kohl’s Wins Clean Air Excellence Award From EPA

 Kohl’s Department Stores received the Gregg Cooke Visionary Program Award at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Clean Air Excellence Awards Program ceremony. The award recognizes Kohl’s for environmental excellence in multiple Clean Air Excellence Award Program categories, including clean air technology, community action and transportation efficiency.
“As a company committed to sustainability, it is our responsibility to do our part to achieve cleaner, healthier air in our communities,” Ken Bonning, Kohl’s executive vice president of store planning and logistics, said. “Initiatives like solar power, support of clean energy sources and moving merchandise by rail are win-win— they make sense from a business, cost and efficiency perspective and help to reduce emissions in the long-term.”
The EPA Clean Air Excellence Award Program, founded in 2000, recognizes individuals and organizations that have undertaken initiatives to help improve air quality.
