always about TJX V.A.L.U.E.

Since The TJX Companies' inception, delivering value to our customers has been our mission, valuing our Associates has been at our core, returning value to our shareholders has been a constant priority, and adding value to our communities has been a central pursuit. Above all else, our corporate value has always been acting with integrity, which informs everything we do.

As our Company grows, we continue to keep these core values of integrity and openness as an integral part of our expanding world. Our global, TJX V.A.L.U.E. corporate responsibility program, captures the essence of our Company, and the five tenets of our program represent pursuits that have been important since the Company’s inception. Those areas are:

Vendor Social Compliance

Attention to Governance

Leveraging Differences

United With Our Communities

Environmental Sustainability

Our program is aimed at helping us continue to make a positive, sustainable impact within the areas which we believe are key to our business and the interests of our shareholders, Associates, customers, vendors and communities.
