Target aims for sustainability in Canadian push

All stores opened so far have LEED certification; retailer hopes to have all future stores certified

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — All of Target's stores in Canada have been certified for sustainability, the retailer said Thursday.

Target said that all of the 68 stores it operates in Canada have been awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED certification; most recently, 44 were certified. The company plans to have all 124 stores it is opening this year LEED-certified.

"Environmental sustainability at Target is fundamental to our business, and we have been working hard in Canada over the past few years to open our most sustainable collection of stores to date," Target Canada SVP external relations Derek Jenkins said. "We are confident that all 124 store locations opening this year will be awarded LEED certification, making Target a leader among Canadian mass retailers when it comes to sustainable store buildings."
