EPA Announces Top 10 Retail Companies Using Green Power

List pinpoints retailers who are the largest annual green power purchasers

 

A growing number of retail companies are buying green power to reduce the environmental impacts associated with the electricity that powers their facilities. A company’s participation in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership demonstrates to its stakeholders - employees, customers, and investors - that it is an environmental leader in its community and is proactively reducing its exposure to risks related to climate change.

The following is a list of the Top 10 Retail Partners in the Green Power Partnership. These Partners have the largest completed annual green power purchases of all Partners within this sector. Their purchases are helping to drive the development of new renewable energy sources. Combined, these leaders’ purchases amount to almost 878,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) annually, which is equivalent to the power required by more than 82,000 homes every year.

  1. Whole Foods Market
  2. Starbucks
  3. Safeway Inc.
  4. Staples
  5. FedEx Kinko’s
  6. HEB Grocery Co./Austin Region Operations
  7. Liz Claiborne Inc./NJ Corporate Headquarters
  8. prAna
  9. Lowe’s Home Centers in NC, NM, SC, TN, TX
  10. Shaw's Supermarkets in Rhode Island

 

This list is current as of Feb. 7, 2006, and will be updated by the EPA quarterly. The next update, scheduled for April 2006, will reflect information received by Partners by March 27, 2006.
