Sourcing sustainable materials
As part of its commitment to use natural resources responsibly, in the past year Target continued implementation of its sustainable materials roadmap.
In March 2017, Target set a goal to source 100 per cent of its house brand cocoa sustainably by 1 July 2019.
Building on this commitment, the first sustainably labelled chocolate products appeared in stores Christmas 2017, and 100 per cent of Easter lines in 2018. We are on track to reach our 100 per cent goal by 1 July 2019, with 47 per cent of products to date transitioning to Target’s preferred sustainable cocoa standards.
This year, Target also made a commitment to source more sustainable cotton. You can read more about why Target has committed to more sustainable cotton here.
