CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

Enjoy a Better, More Sustainable Home

We want our customers to feel good about the high-quality products they choose at Lowe’s. Our products are carefully selected, beginning with our sourcing decisions. We care about how our thousands of products are created and about the people who make them. Through collaboration and established management systems, we monitor our suppliers’ practices to ensure we are securing high quality products from vendors who protect worker rights and the environment.

 

We are also bringing more innovative, efficient and eco-certified products into our portfolio–products that provide health and environmental benefits–to meet the needs of an increasing set of customers who prefer these types of products.

Sustainable for Our Future

Operating our business sustainably means acting in ways that will preserve the precious natural resources around us, reduce our impact on the environment, and leave the world a better place for future generations. At Lowe’s, we believe in the often quoted view that, “We have not inherited the earth from our parents, we have borrowed it from our children.”

Our Achievements

We have many practices currently in place to help us reach our product sustainability goals, and we’re striving to improve them every day.

Eco Products

The decisions we make when improving our home can have an impact on the world around us. Residential housing in the United States accounts for 20% of total energy consumption, over 25% of greenhouse gas emissions, and the average household uses more than 300 gallons of water per day. At Lowe’s, we strive to educate and enable our consumers to make decisions that will reduce their environmental impact and save money while they are doing it.
