The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized PETCO as an “Energy Star” leader for reducing energy consumption by more than 10 percent across its building portfolio. The company’s efforts have prevented more than 30,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions from entering the atmosphere.
Energy Star leaders are named for reducing energy consumption by at least 10 percent across a portfolio of buildings, based on EPA’s standardized tools for tracking energy use.
“At PETCO, we’re committed to making a better world for people and pets, which includes reducing our environmental impact across our business,” said Jim Myers, PETCO’s CEO. “Energy efficiency is an integral part of that commitment and our broader approach to driving more sustainable business practices across our company.”
PETCO has been an Energy Star partner for several years, but became much more active in using the program’s data management tools in 2009, further improving energy efficiency.
