Oversight of our environmental sustainability programs spans many functions across all of our geographies. Our Executive Environmental Steering Committee (EESC) is responsible for guiding the development of TJX’s environmental sustainability strategy and aligning it with the overall business strategy. The EESC is led by our Vice President, Sustainability, who reports directly to the Senior Vice President, Chief Risk and Compliance Officer, and provides the Chief Risk and Compliance Officer with updates on global program progress and identifies, assesses, and reports risks and opportunities on climate-related issues.

The EESC provides guidance, advocacy, support, and oversight for global environmental initiatives, including managing the risks and opportunities associated with climate change, and reviews progress against our quantitative emissions-reduction goals. The group includes senior leadership from Environmental Sustainability, Logistics, Global Communications, Store Operations, Risk and Compliance, Internal Audit, Property Development, Global Sourcing and Procurement, Merchandising, Product Development, and Legal. Periodically, certain members of the EESC may update the Board of Directors on a variety of issues related to corporate responsibility, including environmental sustainability.

The Global Environmental Sustainability Committee (GESC) was established to set global program priorities, facilitate communication and collaboration across geographies, and monitor key sustainability issues and trends. The GESC includes subject matter experts from the U.S., Canada, and Europe, who monitor and manage TJX’s performance in our core environmental sustainability focus areas:

The GESC reports on its progress and strategy to the EESC.

In each geography, members of the GESC also work with their local Subject Matter Experts in areas such as operations, energy, facilities, and procurement, to report progress against specific environmental sustainability initiatives, which are communicated to the divisional leadership and the EESC as appropriate. Periodically, the GESC convenes regional operational teams to discuss global emerging trends and review strategies and best practices that may be reflected in both short- and long-term plans for the geographies. Recent topics of discussion have included chemical policies, single-use plastics, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, renewable energy, climate related risks and opportunities to our business, and emissions within our supply chain.

Together with input from the EESC as well as our global internal stakeholders, the GESC also works to prioritize initiatives that are considered to be meaningful to the Company’s many stakeholders and prepares the business to support our reporting efforts in the dynamic landscape of sustainability reporting and disclosure frameworks.
