1 2 Store Brands / February 2017 / Around the Industry Target announced a new chemical strategy and policy that addresses every product it sells, which the Minneapolis-based retailer says is a first in the retail industry. "Our chemical strategy will be one of the most comprehensive in the U.S. retail industry, including all Target-owned and national brand products and operations, not just formulated products," said Jennifer Silberman, Target's chief sustainability officer. Target said its first set of goals are aimed at addressing unwanted chemicals with the biggest potential health impact and factoring in their prevalence within Target's products. The retailer said it is also prioritizing the areas its customers tell it are most important, such as products that go on, in and around their body. Target is teaming with its vendors, supply chain partners, non- governmental organizations and other organizations across the industry to identify unwanted substances in products and operations, understand how they impact health, and work to develop safer alternatives.
