The Home Depot’s corporate responsibility strategy is values-based and centered on three key pillars: focusing on people, operating sustainably and strengthening our communities. We strive to operate a company that reflects, respects and supports diversity, equity and inclusion among our associates and suppliers, as well as in the communities we serve. We proudly take care of our people; work hard to have a lasting positive impact on the environment; and do our part to make our communities better places to live and work.
Focus on our People
We focus on people by fostering an environment centered on The Home Depot’s core value of respect for all people, where diversity, equity and inclusion are celebrated and associates and suppliers have opportunities to grow. Our approximately 500,000 associates are our greatest asset, and they differentiate us in the marketplace. Our supplier partners sustain our business. And our communities and customers make our success possible.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion | Learning & Development | Associate Engagement | Supplier Diversity
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.
The Home Depot strives to reduce our carbon footprint by improving the efficiency of our store and supply chain operations, and by investing in alternative energy solutions. We partner with suppliers focused on social and environmental compliance, 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 and more resilient. The Home Depot Foundation invests in improving veteran housing, supporting communities affected by natural disasters and training skilled tradespeople to fill the labor gap. Team Depot, our associate volunteer force, provides hands-on project support to further the Foundation’s mission and impact.
