It’s Report Card Time! Sustainability Stats and Our New Goals

POSTED UNDER Social Responsibility

Whether you’re brand new to Macy’s Green Living or you’ve been a long-time visitor, you’re probably aware that Macy’s is deeply committed to sustainability, and that we’ve made tangible progress toward our sustainability goals.

We recently published our 2016 Report on Social Responsibility, and with the end of the year approaching (how did that happen!?), we thought it would be a great time to look back at some of what Macy’s has accomplished in sustainability over the past year, as well as our goals for the future.

The goals, originally set in 2013, seemed ambitious at the time. But in many cases, we’ve already gone well beyond what we originally set out to do, and already have plans for where we’re going next.

During 2015, we:

  • have reduced our energy consumption by more than 28 percent over the past ten years
  • had 78 active solar installations
  • generated 50,162 Megawatt Hours of renewable energy on Macy’s, Inc. facilities
  • decreased the volume of total paper products used through internal operations by 9.5 percent
  • increased the percentage of certified or recycled paper used in marketing materials to 99 percent, compared to 63 percent in 2009

More on Social Responsibility

You may not know that Macy’s commitment to social responsibility goes well beyond sustainability to encompass diversity and inclusion, corporate governance, product sourcing, consumer choice, employment and community support. If you’d like to learn more, download the 2016 Report on Social Responsibility from the Macy’s, Inc. website.

In the meantime, we’ll keep pushing the limits on what we can achieve in sustainability. You can keep up through the Macy’s Green Living website, and you can subscribe for weekly updates delivered right to your inbox.
