The TJX Company, Inc. Announces New Global Environmental Goals, including a Plan to Reach Net Zero Emissions in Its Own Operations by 2040

FRAMINGHAM (Mass.), April 20, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The TJX Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TJX), the leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer in the U.S. and worldwide, today announced plans to expand and accelerate environmental goals as part of the Companys ongoing environmental sustainability strategy.

TJX is working to:

  • Zero net greenhouse gas (GHG), emissions from its operations by 2040

  • By 2030, 100% of its operations will be powered by renewable energy

  • By 2027, divert at least 85% of its operational and waste from the landfill

  • By 2030, 100% of packaging for products created in-house by the product design team will be reusable, recyclable or made from sustainable materials.

“TJX’s mission to deliver great value to its customers every day for 45 years has gone hand in-hand with our commitment as a responsible corporation citizen, invest our Associates and our communities, operate our business ethically, and I am so happy with all that we have accomplished over these years. We are not done yet.” We are proud to have set new environmental sustainability targets to reduce our environmental impact. We look forward enhancing our programs and reporting as the future unfolds.

These commitments are a continuation of the Company’s work and support its environmental priorities, including reducing its emissions and energy consumption, managing waste and sourcing responsibly. TJX established a science-based goal in June 2020 to exceed its previous GHG emissions reduction goal. This target was in accordance with the United Nations Paris Agreement guidelines. It aims to achieve a 55% absolute decrease in GHG emissions from direct operations by Fiscal year 2030, compared to a Fiscal Year 2017 baseline. The Company intends to continue reporting against this target as it works towards its net zero emission goal. TJX has answered the CDP Climate Change Questionnaire twelve consecutive years. Most recently, it received an A- for its disclosure for 2021.

TJX’s Corporate Responsibility efforts include four pillars: Environmental Sustainability, Workplace, Communities and Responsible Business.
