We aim to help vulnerable children and young people achieve their full potential by supporting them to overcome challenges with health, education or poverty.
To do this, we partner with local and national charities across Europe including Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People, Comic Relief, The Prince’s Trust, Enable Ireland, CHILDREN in Germany and WIOSNA in Poland. Since 2004, we’ve raised over £60 million for our charity partners.
We are committed to responsible business practices and review our policies regularly. We set high ethical and environmental standards for ourselves and those we do business with.
Our Vendor Code of Conduct helps ensure that all our products are responsibly sourced. It also ensures that our vendors and their sub-contractors know what we consider acceptable in terms of working hours, safety in the workplace, wages and conditions.
Globally, TJX is working towards achieving our global science-based emissions-reduction target – which is a 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from our direct operations by 2030 against a baseline year of 2016.
In addition, in Europe, we’re on a new path to achieve a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 in our European Operations. TJX Europe have maintained the Carbon Trust Standard since 2009 which recognizes year on year efforts to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. as well as this, 100% of the electricity purchased across the UK, Ireland, Germany and Poland is now renewable.
We’re one of the largest partners of the Prince’s Trust Get into Retail programme, and are proud to have engaged with over 1,500 young people since the programme began in 2013.
Get into Retail provides training, development, and employment opportunities for successful participants, and approximately 70% of our Get into Retail participants have gone on to secure roles with us. In addition to these programmes, our Loss Prevention team partners with The Prince’s Trust to help disadvantaged young people create new futures for themselves through the Get Into Loss Prevention programme.
