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 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. Periodically, certain members of the EESC may update the Board of Directors on a variety of issues related to corporate responsibility, including environmental sustainability.
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:
Sustainable business operations (including energy efficiency, low carbon energy, transportation and logistics, green building, and responsible waste management)
Measurement and reporting
