            For Immediate Release: January 5, 1998 

            No. 98-OPA002 

            NOTE TO CORRESPONDENTS 

            U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 will recognize
            Kmart Corp. for its commitment to EPA's energy-saving and
            pollution-cutting Energy StarŪ Buildings program at an official
signing
            and recognition ceremony Thursday, January 8, at Kmart
            headquarters in Troy, MI, north of Detroit. 

            Acting Regional Administrator David A. Ullrich will present an
Energy
            StarŪ Buildings certificate of appreciation to Kmart's Executive
Vice
            President of Store Operations Donald W. Keeble at an 11 a.m.
            ceremony in the Kmart Resource Center Board Room, 3100 West
            Big Beaver Rd., Troy. Ullrich and Keeble will then sign a
            memorandum of understanding. 

            Companies that join the Energy StarŪ: Buildings program agree to
            install energy-efficient lighting and to upgrade heating and cooling
            systems as part of a whole-building approach to energy savings. The
            reduction in energy use cuts emissions of air pollutants that
contribute
            to smog, acid rain, and global climate change. 

                                     ###
