Issued by Tractor Supply
Tear Sheet highlights progress and programs to benefit all key stakeholders and reinforce the Company’s prioritization to be a responsible corporate citizen.
Since launching a Stewardship Program in 2008, Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO) has been focused on minimizing its environmental impact while serving its customers. As a process of continuous improvement, this commitment to sustainability has expanded over time to focus on broader environmental, social and governance issues (ESG). Despite the challenges of 2020, Tractor Supply increased transparency and disclosure on its environmental operations, commitment to racial equality, community giving and governance practices for long-term shareholder value creation. The Company has issued its second annual ESG Tear Sheet to highlight the changes and programs in place to positively benefit all key stakeholders – Team Members, customers, communities, vendors and shareholders – and reinforce the Company’s prioritization to be a responsible corporate citizen.
The Company published its first ESG Tear Sheet in 2020 (reflecting 2019) as an extension of its annual Stewardship Report, which was first published in 2013. The 2020 ESG Tear Sheet provides new and updated performance metrics for key areas of performance including energy management, recycling efforts, workforce composition, community involvement and volunteering and corporate governance, among others. At Tractor Supply, the Board of Directors has oversight for the Company’s ESG efforts.
Highlights from the new ESG Tear Sheet include:
Tractor Supply has also announced its commitment to establishing new multiyear goals in the important area of greenhouse gas emission reductions and specific strategic commitments to support and advance underrepresented groups across its workforce, vendors, suppliers and communities later this year. These goals will support Tractor Supply’s commitment to drive positive environmental and social change.
The ESG Tear Sheet leverages global best practices, aligning with metrics from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards for the Consumer Goods and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). As part of its focus on transparency, Tractor Supply expanded its reporting to include issuing its inaugural Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) Report in 2020 and submitting data to CDP, the rigorous disclosure system for environmental impacts
