The Home Depot, the world’s largest home improvement retailer, today announced companywide sustainability progress in its 2020 Responsibility Report
, which outlines the company’s 2019 progress on its corporate responsibility strategic pillars: focus on people, operate sustainably and strengthen communities. The report also introduces several new goals and provides an update on the company’s recent response to COVID-19 and social equality issues.
As part of its existing pledge to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 50 percent by 2035, The Home Depot reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent in 2019, driven primarily by energy reductions and supply chain efficiencies.
New goals include a commitment to produce and procure energy from 335 megawatts of renewable and alternative energy projects by 2025.
