Bringing sustainable changes into our business is just one aspect of our sustainability program. We also want to bring sustainability into the homes of our customers around the world. By working with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of the manufacturing processes and use of products sold in our stores, we hope to show our customers that they don't have to pay more for products that can reduce their impact on the environment.
We carry hundreds of thousands of products on our shelves that fall into a number of product categories. We established Sustainable Value Networks (SVNs) that represent different business divisions, such as the Electronics Network, the Food, Agriculture and Seafood Network and the Jewelry Network. Associates in those divisions are a part of the SVN and work hard to find sustainable solutions for products in their category while keeping our business goals top of mind. Additionally, our SVNs include representatives from non-governmental organizations, universities, the government and supplier companies. Together, we are working to put more affordable and environmentally preferable products into the hands of our customers.
