AREAS OF FOCUS
We are committed to making progress within our key focus areas by collaborating across the organization to drive our global and regional environmental sustainability initiatives and targets forward.
Climate and energy
Our approach to managing the climate-related impacts of our own operations uses industry guidance, research, and models that are aligned with the United Nations’ Paris Agreement guidelines and support an emissions growth path
aimed at limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. We have set science-based goals and defined initiatives that support a decarbonization pathway for our global operations, including our goal to achieve net zero greenhouse
gas (GHG) emissions in our direct operations (Scopes 1 and 2) by 2040. Along the way, we intend to reach a 55% absolute reduction in GHG emissions from our direct operations (against a Fiscal 2017 baseline), as well as source 100%
renewable energy1 for use in our operations by 2030.

Teams throughout our business are working towards our goal to divert 85% of our global operational waste from landfill by 2027 by eliminating waste, where possible, and maximizing the reuse and recycling of materials used in our stores,
distribution centers, and corporate offices.

RESPONSIBLE SOURCING: SOURCING MORE SUSTAINABLY
There are many initiatives that make up our responsible sourcing efforts. As we source merchandise, product packaging, and supplies for our own operations, we may find more opportunities to procure materials with sustainable attributes.
As some of our first steps along this journey, we aim to shift 100% of the packaging for products developed in-house by our product design team to be reusable, recyclable, or contain sustainable materials by 2030. Chemicals management
is another workstream within our responsible sourcing focus area. Our Chemicals Management Program includes our approach to addressing select chemicals of concern in our operations as well as in certain products that we sell.
