Committing to Action, Delivering Results

Any decision we make today can affect our world tomorrow — and it's our duty as a company to look out for the Earth’s well-being. That means holding ourselves, our suppliers and our business partners accountable for sustainable business practices. It means constantly reviewing our corporate impact. It means setting goals for improvement and meeting them — and surpassing them in many cases. This is the power of The Home Depot's can-do spirit — working together to create a better world, faster through the business we operate and the products we sell.
