Home Depot CEO Edward Decker,
We, the undersigned, urge The Home Depot to protect the boreal forest by reducing the amount of wood sourced from critical parts of these forests.
In May 2022, a majority of Home Depot shareholders approved a resolution calling on the company to increase its efforts to eliminate deforestation and the degradation of primary forests in its supply chains.
The North American boreal forest is the world’s largest remaining intact forest. But logging threatens to disrupt and damage the boreal habitat of caribou, lynx and billions of birds, as well as the mitigating effect the forest has on global climate change.
The Home Depot can be a leader in sustainable forestry. We urge you to commit to eliminating deforestation and the degradation of primary forests in your supply chains.
