Our goals have been approved by the Science-Based Targets initiative, the organization that provides guidelines to help U.S. companies align their corporate goals with climate science so the economy can progress together.
Target will reduce its absolute Scope 1, 2 and 3* greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent below 2017 levels by 2030.
We’re also committing that 80 percent of our suppliers will set science-based reduction targets on their Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2023.
We’ll get there by continuing to ramp up our use of renewable solar and wind power to offset energy used at our facilities, increasing the energy-efficiency of heating and lighting sources in stores, actively managing our refrigerant inventory, and exploring new programs.
We’re already well on our way through efforts like our participation in the Clean by Design textile industry program and the Vietnam Improvement program, both of which work to improve energy and water efficiency—which we’ll expand in coming years.
