Lately, it seems like the global push for going green isn’t only being driven by concerned citizens, but also by big shots in the corporate world.
Take US retailer Target, for example, that has recently pledged to take a major step forward by committing to source 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. The goal — which applies to all of Target’s domestic operations — will help power its stores, distribution centers, and offices more sustainably and responsibly. There is also an interim objective of sourcing 60 percent of the firm’s electricity from renewables by 2025.
The company plans to achieve its goals by investing in massive wind and solar projects and is also looking to install solar rooftops at 500 of its locations by 2020. This is a remarkable initiative considering that currently only 22 percent of Target’s electricity is covered by renewables.
