Simply Sustainable and EcoSmart® Choices with Targus #EmpowerYourLife
Empower Your Life with Simply Sustainable and EcoSmart® Choices
Targus is on a journey to find better, more productive ways to protect, connect and #EmpowerYourLife with simply sustainable and EcoSmart® choices this #EarthDay and beyond. We are on a mission to participate in a circular economy by extending the life cycle and sustainability of our products from design to distribution, with better materials and a thoughtful product life cycle. This meaningful commitment toward sustainable practices can empower you to take big steps that leave small environmental footprints toward a more sustainable lifestyle.
Here are a few of the ways Targus is making an impact.
Targus Earns EcoVadis Bronze Rating
Our year-round sustainability journey earned a bronze sustainability rating from EcoVadis, the “world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings.” The EcoVadis methodology Sustainability Scorecard reviews company performance across 21 indicators in four themes: environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. Earning a bronze rating is a step in the right direction for Targus, which ranks among the top 50 percent of performers worldwide.
A Step in the Right Direction, Treekly Challenge
Making a sustainable choice is easier when it’s seamlessly integrated into a lifestyle. Targus’ global employees recently participated in a daily walking challenge to turn footsteps into forests by collectively walking three million steps (1,500 miles) using their smartphones and Treekly app. According to Treekly, Targus created fair-wage employment for indigenous communities in Moraharivo, Madagascar to plant and protect more than 11,400 trees. By 2050, the Targus Treekly Initiative will capture approximately 3,858 tons of CO2. That’s like flying from London to Hong Kong more than 1,000 times or driving over six million miles, according to the Treekly Impact report!
Making EcoSmart® Choices
Making an EcoSmart® choice to #EmpowerYourLife should always be the simple choice whether you are at work, in the office or on-the-go.

This #ZeroWaste bag is truly good from the inside out.
