Target Debuts Sustainability Initiative
December 8, 2010,
MINNEAPOLIS-Target has established a number of company-wide sustainability commitments, which are designed to guide its ongoing efforts toward environmental sustainability.
The retailer has introduced a website, hereforgood.target.com, which outlines these commitments. Included will be efforts toward empowering consumers and Target employees to lead a more sustainable lifestyle, expanding Target's choices of sustainable products, leading retailers to develop buildings that use space more efficiently and that enhance local communities, using resources more responsibly, eliminating waste and minimizing its carbon footprint.
In a statement posted on the website, Gregg Steinhafel, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said Target's sustainability commitments are part of the "rigorous programs to reduce our environmental impact" and its goal of "strengthening the communities where we do business."
