As greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions continue to rise, climate patterns are being affected. This is leading to more extreme weather-related events, such as severe storms, flooding and droughts, around the world and here in the United States. As a whole, the retail industry is the second largest contributor of GHG emissions in the United States. Retailers require large amounts of energy to run their establishments and transport goods through their distribution networks.

CVS Caremark is continually assessing the environmental impacts of our business operations. We have identified areas where we can minimize our footprint: reducing energy use and the corresponding GHG emissions; enhancing our Environmental Management Program; conserving other natural resources; promoting more sustainable products; engaging colleagues, customers and other stakeholders in our efforts; and continually incorporating the best practices we learn along the way.
