Nov '16
As part of its initiative to producer ethical and responsibly made garments, Target has unveiled commitments in three important areas; improving worker well being; achieving net positive manufacturing; and deriving key raw materials from ethical and sustainable sources. The retailer aims to make significant progress in these commitments by 2020.

Under the initiative of improving worker well being, Target aims to eliminate forced labour by monitoring forced labour throughout its supply chain and take swift action to eliminate it if discovered.

It will also enhance worker safety throughout the supply chain and also elevate worker well-being again throughout the supply chain.

Under the net-positive manufacturing programme, the retailer will identify and remove all unwanted chemicals from Target owned-brand products and manufacturing, and encourage all supporting industries to incorporate green chemistry principles.

Additionally, it will also drive sustainable water stewardship in Target owned-brand product design and manufacturing; drive clean energy through reduced air emissions in the supply chain; support responsibly managed forests and palm oil production; and lastly champion, responsibly grown and harvested cotton and ensure that it's used in owned-brand products.

As part of the initiative to derive key raw materials from ethical and sustainable sources, it will also replace all conventional polyester with polyester made from recycled plastic in Target owned-brand apparel, accessories and home products. (AR)
