public policy

We believe that engaging in legislative and public-policy activity is an important and necessary element of being a diversified, multi-national retail business.

We work with elected officials of both political parties to help shape constructive public-policy solutions that benefit our business, team, guests and the communities we serve.

Target is committed to aligning our public-policy activities and business interests, employing a decision-making process to support ongoing compliance with our alignment objective, and maintaining transparency to our guests, team members, shareholders and other stakeholders. This framework is overseen by the Nominating & Governance Committee of our Board of Directors.

In 2012, we launched Citizens@Target, Target’s legislative action center for team members and guests. The site, www.citizensattarget.com, is a nonpartisan platform for civic engagement that highlights issues impacting Target’s business and provides resources for team members and members of our communities to get involved.
