To our Associates,
Vendors, and Shareholders:
At TJX, we have a long-standing commitment to creating value for our many valued stakeholders, and I remain proud of that commitment.
For us, delivering real value means so many things – providing great value for our customers in our stores and online; creating value for our Associates by cultivating a welcoming workplace and inclusive culture; being a valued neighbor in our communities by helping people access the resources and opportunities they need to build a better future; and sustaining value by making decisions that are good for our business as well as the environment. These important aspects of corporate responsibility have been part of our DNA throughout our history, and we take great pride in operating our business responsibly. The Company’s core values of honesty, integrity, and treating each other with dignity and respect are woven throughout the fabric of what we do.
As a global off-price value retailer with more than 4,300 stores, located in nine countries, and spanning three continents,1 we focus on operating responsibly throughout our business, and our corporate responsibility reporting is our commitment to keep our stakeholders updated on our efforts. In our 2019 Global Corporate Responsibility report, we provide an update on the exciting progress we are making and the impacts we are having in important areas. Our work is captured under four meaningful pillars: Our Workplace, Our Communities, Environmental Sustainability, and Responsible Business.
As always, I am inspired every day by the thousands of TJX Associates around the globe who embody our core values and bring our corporate responsibility efforts to life. We look forward to continuing to share our journey by celebrating what we believe are impactful stories and reporting our results here on this website.
