At Kohl’s, corporate social responsibility (CSR) means living our values and working to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. The way that our 2015 CSR report is organized is inspired by our four key values: Put Customers First, Act with Integrity, Build Great Teams and Drive Results. We have the privilege of being part of communities that we serve and we work hard to express these values across all aspects of our business.
Some highlights outlined in the 2015 CSR report include:
- Through our philanthropic program, Kohl’s Cares®, we completed more than 28,500 Associate volunteer hours across the country last year, resulting in nearly $16 million in corporate grants for benefiting nonprofit organizations.
- We continue to hold ourselves and our business partners to the highest standards. We have a clear code of conduct and terms of engagement that we honor ourselves and share with our partners to maintain fair business practices.
- With our commitment to Winning Teams, Kohl’s annual associate engagement scores reached that 90th percentile for three of our four business areas, meeting a significant goal set in the first year of our Greatness Agenda.
- As part of our many sustainability efforts, more than 70 Kohl’s stores were ENERGY STAR ® certified, propelling us to milestone of over 1,000 certified stores across the country.
We are proud to share our 2015 CSR report, and look forward to continuing our work on these initiatives.
