Kroger Earns Energy Star Certification for 41 Michigan Stores


NOVI — Energy Star certification was earned by 41 Michigan Kroger stores during 2014.

“Our goal is to reduce Kroger’s carbon footprint while creating a very positive shopping experience for customers,” says Jayne Homco, president of The Kroger Co. of Michigan.

Energy Star is a joint program of the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy to help save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.

The Kroger Co. of Michigan’s conservation efforts are part of a corporate-wide commitment to reduce energy consumption based on customer requests for environmentally friendly stores, Homco says. On a national level, Kroger has reduced energy consumption in its stores by 35 percent since 2000.
