The Home Depot’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy is centered on three key pillars: focusing on our people, operating sustainably and strengthening our communities. We strive to operate as a company that reflects and supports diversity, equity and inclusion among our associates, suppliers and in the communities we serve.
Focus on our People
We focus on people by creating an environment centered on our core value of respect for all people, where diversity, equity and inclusion are celebrated and associates and suppliers have opportunities to grow.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Vision Statement: The Home Depot is building a more diverse, equitable and inclusive organization, within our enterprise and the communities we are proud to serve. Grounded in our core values, we have the conviction, capabilities and tools to make a difference for our associates, community and suppliers.
We strive to reduce our carbon footprint by improving the efficiency of our operations and by investing in alternative energy solutions. We partner with suppliers focused on social and environmental responsibility, and we help our customers reduce their environmental impact by offering products and packaging created with sustainability in mind.
Strengthen Our Communities
Our core values shape our commitment to making the communities we serve stronger. The Home Depot Foundation invests in improving veteran housing, supporting communities affected by natural disasters and training skilled tradespeople to fill the skilled labor gap. Team Depot, our associate volunteer force, provides hands-on support to further the Foundation’s impact.
