Green Masters

Lands' End received a 2017 Green Masters Award from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council, representing the eighth year in a row that the company has been recognized at this level. The Green Masters Award is the highest honor in the council’s program.

The Green Masters Program recognizes Wisconsin's sustainability leaders and encourages continuous improvement. The program is an objective, points-based recognition program for Wisconsin institutions of all sizes and from any sector.

The Green Masters Award criteria is based on actions in nine key sustainability areas:

  • Energy
  • Carbon and other emissions
  • Water
  • Waste and materials management
  • Transportation
  • Supply chain
  • Community and educational outreach
  • Workforce
  • Governance

Energy Star Recognition

Five Lands' End buildings have been designated "ENERGY STAR" facilities by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These facilities meet strict energy standards by using less energy, are less expensive and emit fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

To qualify for ENERGY STAR, a building or manufacturing plant must score in the top 25 percent based on the EPA's National Energy Performance Rating System. To determine the performance of a facility, the EPA compares energy use among other, similar types of facilities on a scale of 1-100. Buildings that achieve a score of 75 or higher may be eligible for the ENERGY STAR. The EPA rating system accounts for differences in operating conditions, regional weather and other important considerations.

Lands' End will continue to work toward achieving this coveted rating for all facilities in the U.S. The Lands' End buildings currently certified include:

  • Corporate Office
  • Outfitters Embroidery Office
  • Warehouse and Distribution Center in Dodgeville
  • Call Center, Embroidery, and Warehouse Facility in Stevens Point
  • Call Center in Reedsburg

Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method

The Lands' End United Kingdom warehouse became BREEAM certified in 2009.

BREEAM is a sustainability assessment method that was launched in 1990 to plan projects, infrastructure and buildings. It sets standards for the environmental performance of buildings through phases of design, specification, construction and operations. It can be applied to new development or renovated buildings. BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method.
