Sustainability, literacy continued goals for Target

MINNEAPOLIS — Target has released its 2011 Corporate Responsibility Report, and while the company was happy to offer insight into its past performance, its focus is on the future. In that vein, the company has introduced new corporate responsibility goals:
 

  • To increase its sustainable seafood selection by ennsuring its fresh and frozen seafood offerings are 100% sustainable and traceable by the end of fiscal year 2015.

  • Enhance at least 50 owned-brand packaging designs to be more sustainable.

  • Increase the percentage of team members and their families enrolled in a Target health plan completing diabetes HbA1c testing to 87 percent by the end of fiscal year 2015.

  • Improve reading proficiency in the United States by completing school library makeovers, providing grants to past makeover recipients and implementing innovative literacy pilots in two additional school districts.

“When Target launched its corporate responsibility goals in 2011, we reinforced our longstanding commitment to creating a brighter future for our team members, our communities, and the world we live in,” said Tim Baer,  EVP, general counsel and corporate secretary for Target. “Target’s corporate responsibility goals foster greater transparency and accountability on initiatives that help put more U.S. children on the path to graduation, reduce our impact on the environment, and help Target team members and their families live healthy, balanced lives.”
