Kohl’s is proud to be a member of the community. And being a part of a community means we have responsibilities to fulfill. We think it’s important to give time, energy and money through our many Kohl’s Cares programs. We also protect the environment by seeking innovative solutions that encourage long-term stability. Responsibility to our investors, communities and environment — it’s all a part of what makes us Kohl’s.
At Kohl’s, we have a responsibility to our investment community to provide accurate, timely and helpful information about our company. Whether you’re a prospective investor or long-time shareholder, we’re sure you’ll find these pages valuable.
We believe in giving back to the communities we serve, not just with money and resources but also with talent and time. Through our community giving and volunteer program, we support kids’ health and education, environmental initiatives nationwide and women’s health in Wisconsin, specifically the fight against breast cancer. Because the way we see it, giving back also means looking ahead.
Kohl’s is committed to protecting and conserving the environment by seeking innovative solutions that encourage long-term sustainability. From large-scale initiatives, like constructing environmentally friendly buildings, to everyday practices, like recycling hangers, we’re taking big steps to ensure we leave a smaller footprint.
