According to Burlington Stores' latest Corporate Social Responsibility Report, the company has achieved progress on a number of sustainability projects in the past year.

As part of its environmental promises, US-based off-price retailer Burlington Stores has decreased its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and built a rooftop solar array at its new California distribution center.

Burlington states in its third annual Corporate Social Responsibility report that since its baseline year of 2016, it has decreased its scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions per operational square foot and every dollar of sales revenue by 44% and 38%, respectively.

At its new California distribution center, the firm has also installed a rooftop solar array. According to the business, the 4.594 megawatts (MW) array went live in July 2021 and is projected to produce around 7,685,000 kilowatt-hours (KWh) of power annually, which is the equivalent of removing almost 1,000 automobiles off the road for a year.

Burlington's new 25,000 sq ft store prototype, compared to the existing 40,000 sq ft store size, is intended to offer leaner inventory, decreased resources, and lower energy use.

To further leverage inclusion and diversity to support Burlington’s growth, the business created and filled the position of senior vice president of inclusion and diversity in the previous year.

The firm's 2020 Corporate Associate Engagement Survey revealed that 91% of Burlington's colleagues feel the company makes it simple for employees of various backgrounds to blend in and be welcomed. Also, for the fourth year in a row, the firm was named to the list of "Best Workplaces for Women."

CEO Michael O'Sullivan, said that their third annual CSR report underlines their commitment to building a more resilient and sustainable organization. Last year's events expedited a much-needed debate about racial equality and social justice, which they must continue to prioritize moving ahead. Furthermore, environmental consequences from a fast-changing climate force every industry, including Burlington, to consider how they might contribute to a more sustainable global economy.
