Emission Reduction - Transportation: In addition to using rail for more than 50 percent of inbound transportation, Kohl's also makes it a priority to ensure trucks carrying merchandise are full on trips both to and from distribution centers, executing more than 17,400 backhaul trips in 2010. Kohl's also encourages all carriers to be members of EPA's SmartWay Shipper program, which stresses fuel efficiency and carbon-reduction strategies.

Stakeholder Engagement: Kohl's sustainability initiatives continue to grow and evolve through close collaboration with stakeholders ranging from associates to suppliers. Associates show their support for the environment not only in the decisions they make every day, but also through more formal company initiatives such as on-site vegetable gardens at the corporate office, carpooling and Kohl's annual companywide National Go Green volunteer event. Among suppliers, Kohl's engages in ongoing conversations about the importance of sustainable operations, encouraging them to embrace a sustainability policy with long-term accountability. The company measures the sustainability practices of its 300 top suppliers quarterly and holds annual supplier roundtable discussions that provide education and resources in the realm of retail sustainability.

These and many other initiatives comprise Kohl's formal environmental program, part of the Kohl's Cares philanthropic platform, committed to making communities happier, healthier, greener places to live and work. Through charitable giving and volunteer programs for kids' health and education and environmental initiatives, Kohl's supports local communities through programs which include: Kohl's Cares cause merchandise program, Kohl's Cares Associates in Action program, Kohl's Cares Scholarship program, Kohl's Cares Fundraising Gift Card program and Kohl's Cares Advancing Environmental Solutions.
