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 2020 greenhouse gas reduction goal of 15%. We are also setting goals towards ultimately procuring 100% of our electricity from renewable sources to 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 in some locations.
