At TJX, VALUE lives at the heart of our business and for nearly 40 years, our divisions have been proud to deliver high quality and brand name fashion merchandise to our customers, all at amazing values. Staying true to our roots, our corporate responsibility mission is focused on delivering real value to our many important stakeholders – Associates, Customers, Communities, Vendors and Shareholders.
For Associates, we support and recognize the value that each individual brings to this Company and the critical role they play in our success. For our customers and the communities we serve, we take to heart the organizations we support and embrace programs that help vulnerable families and children access the resources and opportunities they need to build a better future. In environmental sustainability, we remain conscientious about reducing energy consumption and waste to help minimize our impact on the environment and do what is good for the business. At all times, we operate our business responsibly, with maintaining strong vendor relationships and returning value to our shareholders among our ongoing priorities. We approach our role as a corporate citizen seriously, always striving to act with integrity, which affects every aspect of our business.
As our global corporate responsibility efforts have continued to evolve, so is the way in which we report our progress. We report our progress under these four strategic pillars.
