Sears customers saved over $80 million in energy costs by choosing ENERGY STAR qualified major appliances in 2011

Sears Canada Inc. has been named the 2012 ENERGY STAR Retailer of the Year award by Natural Resources Canada. This is the 5th year in a row that Sears received this prestigious award from the Government of Canada for empowering customers to reduce their energy use, and the sixth time overall since the program started in 2003.

"Sears Canada is proud to be a leader in promoting energy efficiency," said Calvin McDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer at Sears Canada. "Sears considers the ENERGY STAR program to be an important component to the offering we make to our customers to help them save energy, and we are pleased to have been named as Canada's leading retailer in this area by the Government of Canada."

Sears offers the largest selection of ENERGY STAR qualified products in Canada, helping customers save money in the face of rising energy prices. This includes central air conditioners, tankless water heaters, windows and doors and major household appliances and electronics.

Leadership in Sustainability
Sears Canada made a commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of its retail operations by 20% below 2007 levels by 2013. Sears is on track to meet this target ahead of schedule and has renewed its commitment to achieve a 50% reduction by 2020. Sears is also committed to offering its customers environmentally preferable products and fostering a culture of sustainability with its associates.

Sears Canada is a multi-channel retailer with a network that includes 196 corporate stores, 271 hometown dealer stores, 29 home services showrooms, over 1,500 catalogue and online merchandise pick-up locations, 105 Sears Travel offices and a nationwide home maintenance, repair and installation network.
