PROGRAM OVERSIGHT


Our Executive Environmental Steering Committee is responsible for guiding the development of TJX’s environmental sustainability strategy and aligning it with the overall business strategy. The steering committee provides guidance, advocacy, support, and oversight for global environmental initiatives, including guidance in managing the risks and opportunities associated with climate change, and reviews progress against our global greenhouse gas target. The group includes senior leadership from Environmental Sustainability, Logistics, Global Communications, Store Operations, Compliance, Enterprise Risk Management, Internal Audit, Property Development, Global Sourcing and Procurement, Merchandising, Product Development, and Legal.

TJX also has a Global Environmental Sustainability Committee (GESC) that includes environmental sustainability subject matter experts from the U.S., Canada, and Europe. This committee facilitates collaboration across geographies on TJX’s core environmental sustainability focus areas:


The Global Environmental Sustainability Committee reports on its progress and strategy to the Executive Environmental Steering Committee. Members of the GESC help shape the high-level environmental sustainability priorities for the business, which can also influence the strategies of regional operational teams. Periodically, these regional operational teams review and modify their strategies, in conjunction with feedback from the GESC, to reflect both short- and long-term plans for the regions.

In 2017, the GESC worked on several key initiatives, including the exploration of options for setting our next greenhouse gas target, and discussed our approach to renewable energy products. It also broadened its engagement with key decision makers across the business to help determine the ways to best prioritize environmental sustainability projects under the Company’s environmental sustainability roadmap. The GESC works to prioritize initiatives that are meaningful to the Company’s many stakeholders and prepares the business to support the dynamic landscape of sustainability reporting and disclosure frameworks.
