Honor for The Home Depot
For the 11th time, The Home Depot® has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for its partnership with ENERGY STAR
Home Depot continues to work to decrease its environmental impact by reducing electricity consumption and boosting alternative and renewable energy capacity. Since 2010, The Home Depot has reduced electricity consumption in its US stores by 44 percent, and it currently operates electricity-generating fuel cells in more than 200 stores. By 2030, the company aims to produce or procure renewable electricity equivalent to the electricity needs for all Home Depot facilities, further extending its efforts to improve the environment through cleaner energy.
“We exceeded our multi-year goal to help our customers save $2.8 billion on utility bills through the purchase and proper use of energy-efficient products,” said Ron Jarvis, chief sustainability officer for The Home Depot. “ENERGY STAR-labeled products were key to that achievement. This is a tremendous honor, and I’d like to thank our associates and customers who have adopted the more than 15,000 ENERGY STAR products that we carry in stores and online.”
