we are championing sustainability efforts that reinforce the healthy
lifestyle we hope to inspire in our customers. In partnership with
ENERGY STAR, Kohl's continues to evaluate our energy footprint across
the country to increase operational efficiency and reduce our carbon

leadership enhance America's economic competitiveness. Reducing costly
energy waste improves air quality and public health while protecting the

The highest honor among ENERGY STAR Awards is the ENERGY STAR Partner of
the Year—Sustained Excellence Award. EPA presents the Sustained
Excellence Award to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR
Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years
and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for
recognition. Winners hail from small, family-owned businesses to Fortune
500 organizations – representing energy-efficient products, services,
new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public
