As the second largest retail polluter via fossil-fueled ships, Target must reach farther and decarbonize by 2030.
Target's Climbing Climate Emissions
As the second-most polluting retail company on our oceans, Target’s use of fossil-fueled ships produced 543K metric tons of carbon just from its imports into the U.S.

Target's Pledge to Ship It Zero
Target has joined other major retailers in committing to moving their products off of fossil-fueled ocean cargo ships by 2040. We applaud this as a great first step, but 2040 is too late. Target must reach net-zero carbon ocean shipping by 2030.
Target's Zero-Emission Opportunity
To be a true climate leader, we expect more from Target. We call upon the retailer to stop moving products on fossil-fueled ships by 2030 — 10 years earlier than their 2040 commitment.
