Hello, everyone,

1. The company is moving forward towards an achievable target.

Is the above sentence correct?

Hello, Ahmad,

Yes, sentence (1) is correct. From the fact that something is moving towards another thing we cannot infer that it is moving forward or backward.

A: He was moving toward it.
B: Was he moving forwards or backwards?
A: He was moving backwards. He was moving backwards toward it.

Technically, then, the addition of the adverb "forward" is not redundant. But it is not necessary in your sentence, with its talk of the movement of a company.

To save a word, simply delete "forward." If you use both "forward" and "towards an achievable target," that's fine. I don't recommend using "forwards towards."
