Kohl's Goes Green

RSS
Kohl's Corp. plans to make all its newly built stores environmentally friendly through measures such as using sustainable materials and cutting down on energy costs, starting with stores open next fall.

The company plans to follow guidelines to earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certification from the Washington-based U.S. Green Building Council, said Ken Bonning, executive vice president of logistics for Kohl's.

The changes will affect new stores the company builds, not ones that move into pre-existing buildings. The Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based retailer plans to open 80 new stores in 2008, spread across 28 states including Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
