One Year In, Target’s Future at Heart Strategy is Already Helping Create a Better Tomorrow

(STL.News) – One year ago, Target unveiled our Future at Heart corporate responsibility strategy. The concept is simple: A commitment to put the needs of people, communities and the planet at the center of everything we do, to help create a better tomorrow.

From the beginning, we knew this was an important business investment that would make our team and company stronger, too.  And that’s already coming true, because beyond the impact we’re seeing against our ambitious corporate responsibility goals, the work is contributing to Target’s best financial performance in over a decade.

Today, we’re proud to share the next chapter of that story with the release of our 2019 Corporate Responsibility Report.  Inside, you’ll find an overview of Target’s efforts within the four pillars of our strategy—Empower Teams, Serve Guests, Foster Communities and Design Tomorrow.  You’ll also get an in-depth look at where we landed with our goals, and a look ahead at new commitments that will shape our future.

“Future at Heart was designed to fuel growth and create lasting value for our guests, our team members, our stakeholders and our planet,” says Brian Cornell, Target’s chairman and CEO.  “Every action outlined in this report ties back to our ultimate aspiration—helping all families discover the joy of everyday life—and building a company that strengthens the communities we serve for generations to come.”
