Target Debuts Sustainability Initiative

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,, 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.
