TJX Associates engaging, collaborating, and planning with a goal of minimizing environmental impact

We know that corporate responsibility, including environmental sustainability, is increasingly important to both current and prospective Associates, and we believe that the more we collaborate across the organization, the better our program can be. At TJX, our Associates are encouraged to consider how to make operational decisions that minimize environmental impact, and we communicate this in our Global Code of Conduct.

We have global Energy teams, global Waste Management teams, and other teams that share best practices and collaborate on opportunities for efficiency gains and operational cost savings. We plan to continue to foster these global, cross-functional initiatives to better address environmental sustainability risks and create efficiency opportunities for our business.

In fiscal 2021, the event was held virtually and included 60 vendors with purchase incentives for Associates, do-it-yourself activities, and guest speakers. Other key successes included:

GREEN IT


As our environmental sustainability strategy and program continue to evolve, teams throughout our business are coming together to collaborate and align with our corporate sustainability priorities to further drive this progress. To that end, in fiscal 2021, we launched Green IT, an initiative focused on managing and leveraging technology to reduce the TJX Global IT team’s environmental footprint.
