ethics at Target

a message from our CEO

As a purpose-driven company, we know how important it is to draw on shared values and behaviors to bring that purpose to life. To help our team members do that each and every day, we’ve created a Code of Ethics that represents our values and the promises we make to our guests, team, stakeholders, communities and our Target brand.

In our daily work, we’re building connections with the people and communities we serve. Every good decision strengthens those bonds and helps create a brand we can be proud of every day. 

-- Brian Cornell, CEO

Code of Ethics

Target Corporation is committed to complying with laws and conducting business ethically. Each Target team member, regardless of role or entity, has a duty to follow the law, the Code of Ethics, and Target’s policies. Team members are obligated to report any actual or suspected violations and always make ethical business decisions that align with Target’s values and behaviors.

The Code of Ethics provides expectations for team member conduct and guides ethical decision making. While it is not possible to specifically cover all laws and policies, the Code establishes expectations to consistently guide ethical decision making.

Guest trust is critical to our success – trust in our products, our services and our actions. And this trust, built up over decades of ethical practice, can either be enhanced or eroded by the decisions we make each day.
