Kohl’s Department Stores will now go green with renewable energy sources
Department stores go green, this time with Kohl taking the initiative. Kohl’s Department Stores have decided to do the environment a favor and use alternative means of energy instead of simply exploiting the grid. The company announced the purchase of 1.4 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of renewable energy that will help power up 100% of its energy use. The company aims at achieving a target of zero carbon emissions by the end of this year and this purchase will sure be a push forward. To prove just how much emission the company will avoid, here’s a small fact; this purchase of renewable energy will result in avoiding the CO2 emissions that equal nearly 188,000 vehicles or the amount of power required to juice up 128,000 American homes every year.
Now that is an incredible figure. This power will be squeezed out of wind, solar and biomass generation. With this, Kohl’s Department Stores sure takes the retail business a step closer to a greener world.
