On October 15, Target joined private and public sector leaders at the White House for a roundtable discussion about reducing hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) usage in refrigeration methods to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Companies were recognized for efforts to use more climate friendly refrigerants and set ambitious commitments to address potent greenhouse gases.
Target was one of 68 new companies to join the Obama administration's American Business Act on Climate Pledge, bringing the total to 81 companies. Each participating company submitted individual changes they will implement, to help reduce 6 billion tons of carbon pollution by 2030, which is "equivalent to taking all the cars in the United States off the road for more than four years," according to the White House press release. Below are the eight new commitments Target unveiled at the meeting.
