The Home Depot CEO Ted 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.
The North American boreal forest is the world’s largest remaining intact forest. It is home to diverse and vulnerable species, including threatened boreal caribou, lynx, and 3 billion birds. The forest is also essential to mitigating climate change, and stores 300 billion tons of carbon.
Clearly, this wild and environmentally critical place should be protected. By committing to preserving the boreal, The Home Depot will establish itself as a leader in sustainable wood sourcing.
