The Target Sustainable Product Standard
Thursday, March 20
2:00 - 3:00 pm ET
There is a growing consumer demand for more sustainable products and solutions, and retailers play a critical role in designing and encouraging the needed sustainable market transformation to meet the demand.
In support of Target’s commitment to expand their selection of sustainable product choices that effectively balance price, performance and convenience, Target developed the Sustainable Product Standard - a common language, definition and process for qualifying ‘more’ sustainable products within top priority categories at Target.
This webinar will provide participants with an understanding of:
- The changing market landscape
- Target's approach to sustainable products
