The company continues to take steps in important areas, including efforts to reduce energy use and emissions, enhance its overall workplace experience, grow community engagement and improve its offering of sustainable products. In 2016, Lowe’s established a Sustainability and Product Stewardship Council to oversee sustainability priorities, and the company intends to launch an enhanced sustainability strategy enterprise-wide this year.

Lowe’s received national recognition for service to the community, environment and its employees in 2016. Boys & Girls Clubs of America presented the company with its 2016 Corporate Philanthropy Award for making an extraordinary impact on the lives of young people. Lowe’s became the only retailer to receive eight SmartWay awards from the Environmental Protection Agency for promoting clean transportation practices. And the company received the U.S. Department of Defense Freedom Award, the highest government honor given to employers for supporting the military, particularly employees serving in the Guard and Reserves.

Lowe’s recently expanded its military support by announcing an enhanced military discount – 10 percent off purchases every day to current and honorably discharged members of the U.S. military. For additional details about the discount, visit Lowes.com/Military.
