Consumers are passionate about sustainability, and their spending choices are increasingly reflecting that commitment. Target is responding to its customers’ priorities with a few new ones of its own, including a pledge to become a net-zero enterprise in less than twenty years. This means that Target will eliminate waste destined for landfills from its U.S. operations and create net-zero emissions in its operations and supply chain. The retailer wants to accomplish all this by the year 2040.
“These standards are being worked on as we speak. You’ll see them throughout today and in the future. And then, as we launch new brands, that will be more embedded in what that brand launch looks like. So more to come,” said Amanda Nusz, the retailer’s senior vice president of corporate responsibility.
