Just weeks after releasing a new forest products policy, in which it pledges to source all of the wood, paper, paper-based and wood-based fiber used in its brand-owned products from post-consumer recycled materials and credibly certified forests, retail giant Target has announced five new sustainable packaging goals.
“We know our guests pay attention to packaging and its impact on the environment,” said Jen Silberman, Target’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “When we provide them with thoughtfully designed, environmentally friendly packaging, we’re able to help them take another step toward sustainable living.”
“As a leader in design, we can use our expertise to create more sustainable packaging options for our guests and help deliver products that are both better-for-you and better for the environment,” Silberman said.
“With the power of Target’s team and our scale as one of the country’s largest retailers, we hope to be a catalyst for change across the industry — aiming for the day when all packaging will be recyclable and leading the way to a packaging-waste-free world.”
