Home Depot Lowers Emissions, Power Use

The Home Depot reduced its combined Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by approximately 172,000 metric tons in 2021.

The company reduced its electricity consumption by approximately 11% year-over-year in U.S. stores – while at the same time opening five new stores.

The retailer cut U.S. store electricity usage by 50% since 2010 and completed a multi-year project to convert U.S. stores to LED overhead lighting

Details were given in The Home Depot's 2022 ESG Report.

"Our team knows that an effective ESG strategy works best when we all work together – our associates, nonprofit partners and supplier partners – to generate the most positive impact possible," said Ted Decker, CEO and president of The Home Depot in a statement
