If you are looking for this statement in the “words” of the company, the best place to look is on the company Website or annual report (which may be part of the Website). An Internet search on the company should do the trick. For a more specific search, you can try an Internet search such as this:

Target + Mission Statement

If you duplicate the search above and find the mission statement page, you will see that Target has augmented the page with charities they are involved with and values they promote. Remember that when looking at any document, point of view or bias is something to keep in mind. Be aware that companies will not post negative information about themselves on the Web. Sometimes mission statements are slogans. Not-for-profit organizations have mission statements too.

You can also do a regular search on appropriate databases located under the Business Subject heading and look for articles that perhaps have a different perspective.
