Many of our corporate responsibility reporting initiatives take into consideration various global standards and reporting frameworks. For example, we have reviewed and incorporated a number of relevant human rights standards enunciated
by international organizations, such as the United Nations and the International Labour Organization, into our Global Social Compliance Program. We also map our global corporate responsibility report to certain frameworks, including
the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the International Sustainability Standards Board’s SASB standards, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). In addition, we have responded to the CDP
Climate Change Questionnaire since 2010.
Our Global Corporate Responsibility Executive Steering Committee reviews and considers our corporate responsibility efforts from a cross-functional and cross-divisional perspective. In doing so, the Committee, among other things, guides
corporate responsibility strategies to align them with TJX business priorities, supports our global corporate responsibility efforts across functions and geographies, facilitates corporate responsibility information exchange, recommends
additional program efforts, and, through the Committee’s executive sponsor, periodically reports on our progress to the Company’s senior management and Board of Directors. The committee is led by a Senior Executive
Vice President (SEVP), Group President, who, among his other duties, provides management oversight of TJX’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.
We think of our global corporate responsibility program as ever evolving, and we are pleased to present our continued progress here. Corporate responsibility has been part of the fabric of who we are from day one, and we strive to
make a meaningful impact on the world, with our efforts reflecting our core values of honesty, integrity, and treating each other with dignity and respect.
“It is clear to us that our commitment to continuing to develop and implement meaningful environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices is as important as ever. It’s what we believe our customers, communities, and other stakeholders expect of us––and it’s what we demand of ourselves.”
Chief Executive Officer and President
