Green Building


As we construct new buildings, we incorporate environmentally sustainable features whenever feasible. Furthermore, when we move into existing properties, as part of the renovation process, our design teams typically consider ways to improve energy efficiency and water conservation and to develop recycling infrastructure.



Home Offices


Our office buildings in Marlborough, Massachusetts, have earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design1 (LEED) Gold certification from the Green Building Council. The buildings feature light-emitting diode (LED) lighting and occupancy sensors in offices and conference rooms, as well as 100% compostable utensils, plates, and napkins in the cafeterias, among other sustainability features. At our global headquarters in Framingham, Massachusetts, as part of the cafeteria remodeling in 2019, we installed a variety of energy-saving fixtures and introduced compostable service-ware. Tri-sorter waste and recycling bins have also been installed across these buildings.

TJX Canada’s regional headquarters is LEED Silver certified. In addition to energy and water conservation measures, environmentally sustainable features are incorporated throughout the building, including using Forest Stewardship Council-certified (FSC-certified), reclaimed wood, low or no volatile organic compound paints and flooring, and other sustainable materials in the interior finishes, workstations, outdoor areas, and cafeteria. We have special hybrid and electric vehicle charging stations. The headquarters also has interior landscaping, a “no mow” zone to support the monarch butterfly migration and bee populations, and a vegetable and herb garden that is managed by Associates. We purchased renewable energy credits to offset the electricity carbon footprint for this building.

For our new Europe headquarters, of which the first phase opened in 2019, we made design and facility decisions that support our commitment to environmental sustainability for the long term. We are also implementing a new waste strategy to improve Associate recycling and to use upcycled materials for parts of the furniture. We have achieved an “Excellent” BREEAM certification (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method, an environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings) for the design based on the building’s environmental sustainability credentials.



Distribution Network


As we build new distribution and shipping centers, we are incorporating environmentally sustainable features whenever feasible and are pleased to have received LEED certification for our distribution centers in Jefferson, Georgia and Las Vegas, Nevada and for the office space in our Phoenix, Arizona distribution center.

TJX Europe’s processing center in Wakefield, England, houses sustainable features like LED lighting and adiabatic cooling in the warehouse to reduce refrigeration use. We were pleased to have achieved a “Very Good” rating from BREEAM following its review of the building’s environmental sustainability features. In addition to this new center, our processing center in Bergheim, Germany has been recognized for its environmental design with a Silver award for Best Sustainable Design by the German Sustainable Building Association, and our processing center in Wroclaw, Poland also uses many environmentally-friendly technologies, including LEDs, solar panels, and thermal energy.
