Corporate Social
Responsibility

At Ross Stores, Inc., which includes Ross Dress for Less and dd’s DISCOUNTS, treating our Associates, our communities, and our environment with respect is a priority every day. We are also committed to ethical business practices as a cornerstone of our Company.

While we have a number of corporate social responsibility programs today, our commitment to this area constantly requires new thinking and new approaches. As a result, we are always looking for ways to improve.
