Ambitions: Design and elevate sustainable brands Innovate to eliminate waste Accelerate opportunity and equity
Signature goals include: "By 2030, we aim to be the market leader for creating and curating inclusive, sustainable brands and experiences. By 2040, we plan for 100% of our owned brand products to be designed for a circular future. We will continue designing to eliminate waste, using materials that are regenerative, recycled or sourced sustainably, to create products that are more durable, easily repaired or recyclable. By 2040, we commit to being a net zero enterprise – zero waste to landfill in our U.S. operations and net zero emissions across both our operations and supply chain, inclusive of scopes 1, 2 and 3. By 2030, we aim to build a team that equitably reflects the communities we serve, beginning with our commitment to increase Black team member representation across the company by 20% by 2023. Target and the Target Foundation will become even more deeply ingrained within our communities, lifting up the voices and unique perspectives of community members to maximize the positive impact we can create together."
