May 4, 2010,
PLANO, Texas-J.C. Penney has set a corporate goal to reduce the energy consumption at its facilities by 20 percent per gross square foot by 2015.
In a statement, the department-store retailer said it will reach this goal by improvements in energy efficiency and by accelerating its company culture, which advocates and practices conservation. J.C. Penney has invested more than $130 million over the past 10 years on energy-efficiency technologies in its stores and logistics centers. This expenditure resulted in a year-over-year elimination of about 80 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions in 2009 alone, the statement said.
