Apparel and home fashions retailer The TJX Companies announced today the launch of a series of new sustainability goals focused on climate change, renewable energy, waste and product packaging, including a goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in its operations by 2040.
In addition to its new net zero goal, by 2030, TJX is aiming to source 100% renewable energy in its operations, and for 100% of packaging for its in-house developed products to be reusable, recyclable, or contain sustainable materials. TJX also announced a target to divert 85% of its operational waste from landfill by 2027.
Ernie Herrman, CEO and President of The TJX Companies, Inc, said:
“I am so pleased with all we have accomplished over the years, and we are by no means done. These new environmental sustainability goals are important to us in terms of our work to mitigate our impact on the environment. We look forward to continuing to enhance our programs and reporting as we move forward.”
