Kohler Co. is a privately held organization of 30,000 associates worldwide, driving a diverse portfolio of leading brands in kitchen and bath products, engines and power generation products, fine furniture and tile, and world-class hospitality and championship golf courses. With the enhancement of nature being an element of its mission throughout its 140-year history, Kohler is committed to expanding its efforts to develop more sustainable products and services.
With clean water scarcity emerging as a major environmental and health issue worldwide, Kohler is engaged in helping develop constructive solutions with educational programs, awareness campaigns and water-efficient products. As a result of these efforts, Kohler has earned four consecutive EPA WaterSense awards, and is also an active partner in the Alliance for Water Efficiency, Alliance for Sustainable Built Environments, and USGBC.
In 2009, the company defined its sustainability strategy around three planks: (1) reducing its environmental foot print with a key goal of being net zero in solid waste and carbon with offsets by 2035; (2) developing new products and technologies that are more sustainable in use and method of manufacture; and (3) driving communication and awareness to educate associates, consumers and trade partners on water conservation and sustainable building practices, and how they impact the environment and human health.
