Corporate responsibility, including environmental sustainability, is important to both current and prospective Associates. We welcome ideas that could help enable our business to reduce our environmental footprint, use less energy,
and create less waste in our operations. Our Associates are encouraged to consider how to make operational decisions that can potentially minimize environmental impacts, and we communicate this in our Global Code of Conduct.
Additionally, we have organized global cross-functional teams focused on supporting the implementation of our environmental sustainability programs, goals and initiatives. Specifically, we have created teams that address key strategies
focused on the following topics: Carbon and Energy, Waste Management, Green IT (Information Technology), and Sustainable Merchandise and Packaging.
