At Target, our guests shop with us knowing they can expect more—not just in the products and experiences we offer, but that we hold ourselves to the highest standards as a company. And we’re continuing to transform our business to create a positive impact for people and the planet.
“We’re committed to making our business economically, environmentally and socially sustainable,” says Jennifer Silberman, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). “And beyond that, we have an opportunity to transform the guest experience beyond the register in a way that unlocks long-term business value. With the power of our team, and our scale as one of the country’s largest retailers, we hope to be a catalyst for change across the industry.”
That’s the story behind our progress in our latest Corporate Social Responsibility Report. Inside, we look back on where we landed with our 2016 goals, and ahead at new commitments—built around our products, team, communities and the planet—that will challenge us to lead the way to progress in the future.
Net Zero: Aspiration vs. Reality in CPG & Retail

Join us as Capgemini and frog detail some of the tools, technologies, and shifts in mindset and skillset needed for companies to walk their talk and leave a legacy of resilience and stewardship for generations to come — Tuesday, Oct. 17 at SB'23 San Diego.
Next up? We’ll continue building on our longstanding legacy of community support and sustainable operations. As part of this work, we’re aligning our future commitments with the UN Sustainable Development Goals to do our part in achieving this global agenda.
