The Home Depot / 2 min read

The Home Depot believes in doing our part. Every day, we seek to prove that corporate responsibility strengthens our company. We organize our approach to corporate responsibility around three key pillars: focusing on our people, operating sustainably and strengthening our communities.

Our commitment to operating sustainably has never been stronger. This year, we have added new commitments and declared ambitious goals related to climate change and waste. When we make progress in reducing The Home Depot’s environmental impact, we strengthen our business and the communities we serve.

Paring Down Single-Use Plastics

The Home Depot is leading a multi-year effort, in partnership with suppliers, to reduce virgin plastic in the products we sell. In 2020, more than 200 products were re-designed to shrink single-use plastics. This follows a historic year in 2019 during which more than 1,000 products were produced or packaged using less virgin plastic.
