Sears to Receive Appliance Retailing Award

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) have recognized Sears, Roebuck and Co. with the Excellence in Appliance Retailing 2005 award for its outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through leadership in energy-efficient appliance retailing. Sears' accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., U.S. on March 15, 2005.

A partner in the program for more than 5 years, Sears will be honored for its leadership in promoting appliances that earn the ENERGY STAR, the U.S. government-backed symbol for energy efficiency. Sears sold more than 3.7 million ENERGY STAR qualified appliance products in 2004, a 35 percent increase over 2003.

"Sears not only sustained its commitment to energy-efficiency in 2004, but raised the standard, as well," said Tina Settecase, vice president and general manager of Home Appliances for Sears, Roebuck and Co. "We worked hard on multiple fronts to bring ENERGY STAR qualified appliances to a broader cross- section of Americans, and we're very proud of the fact that no other retailer sells more ENERGY STAR rated appliances than Sears. It's so gratifying to know our efforts have made it easier for consumers to choose more efficient appliances for their homes. These products have the added benefit of helping to save money while protecting the environment -- which is what ENERGY STAR is all about."

According to the retailer, the Excellence in Appliance Retailing award is a distinctive honor held only by Sears in 2005. Sears was selected from among thousands of organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program.

"ENERGY STAR depends upon partners like Sears to offer products that help consumers make the connection between energy efficiency and environmental protection in their own homes," said Kathleen Hogan, director of EPA's Climate Protection Partnerships Division. "This award is our chance to recognize partners like Sears for their exceptional efforts in helping Americans benefit from the purchase of over one billion ENERGY STAR qualified products to date."

By choosing ENERGY STAR qualified products, the typical American household can reportedly save up to 30 percent on their energy bills, or about U.S. $400 a year. Last year alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy to power 20 million homes and reduce air pollution equivalent to that of 18 million cars -- all while saving $8 billion.
