MINNEAPOLIS - May 15, 2013
Target has taken a strategic approach to our limited production in Bangladesh. We have been intently focused for several years on creating a safer business environment in Bangladesh. Specifically, we have expanded our audit practices and increased our oversight of worker and workplace safety. We do not believe that low-cost production should come at the expense of social responsibility and workplace safety – whether it’s in Bangladesh or anywhere else across the globe where we conduct business. We continue to work with industry partners and third party organizations to influence safety improvements.
