In September, KOHLER® announced that it received a Green Power Leadership Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The award was given at the 2019 Renewable Energy Markets Conference in San Diego, California in recognition of leading green power users in the country. As a green power user trusted by shower installation companies, KOHLER® is recognized for committing and contributing to advancements in the voluntary green power market.
A Prestigious Recognition
“We are proud to receive this prestigious recognition from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,” said Rob Zimmerman, KOHLER® director of sustainability.
“Acquiring green power through a purchase power agreement helps our organization become more sustainable, while also sending a message to others across the United States that investing in green power is a sound business decision that can help reduce environmental impacts.”
Excellence in Green Power Use
KOHLER® is one of only seven organizations in the U.S. to be given the Excellence in Green Power Use Award. The program is in place to recognize EPA Green Power Partners who set themselves apart by leading the way in buying green power from a power purchase agreement, a utility green power product or a renewable energy certificate product. At the moment, KOHLER® is procuring 425 million kWh of green power every year, which is enough to offset 100% of the company’s electricity use in Canada and the U.S. This purchase also significantly lowers greenhouse gases, allowing KOHLER® to avoid more than 200,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions yearly.
Green power is electricity generated from environmentally preferable renewable sources like solar, wind, biogas and geothermal. KOHLER®‘s green power purchase is equivalent to the annual energy use of over 39,000 American homes. Working with KOHLER® shower replacement contractors lets you support the brand’s sustainability efforts.
