Energy and Climate Change
We are dedicated to reducing our energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions to protect future generations from the impacts of climate change. We are proud of our pledge to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050.
Energy conservation, green building principles, renewable energy use and proactive environmental management are essential pillars of greening our workplace. In our hometown of New York City, our corporate offices were consolidated and are now LEED™ Platinum certified for Commercial Interiors.
By fitting new and existing stores with LED lighting, we are reducing total energy use as part of our greenhouse gas reduction goal of 15% from 2013 to 2020. We are expanding our renewable energy portfolio to ultimately use 100% renewable energy for our electricity to help meet our longer term aspiration of net-zero. In our manufacturing and distribution facilities, we are implementing a variety of emission-reduction programs, including the use of solar arrays.
