Target aims for LEED in Canadian stores
Target has announced that 44 Canadian locations have been awarded LEED certification.
The new additions makes them the first major retailer in the country to have all 68 of their newly launched locations achieving LEED certification.
“Environmental sustainability at Target is fundamental to our business, and we have been working hard in Canada over the past years to open our most sustainable collection of stores to date,” said Target Canada’s vice president, external relations Derek Jenkins.
Target also looks to do the same for 124 stores slated to open in Canada this year.
The remaining stores are scheduled to undergo multiple rounds of audits throughout 2013, taking note of sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials section and indoor environmental quality.
