Join Office Depot, and make it your business to do all you can for our communities as well as the environment. From our charitable giving to our commitment to diversity and our Green efforts, corporate citizenship is part of what differentiates Office Depot from other employers. It’s just another way we stay dedicated to our vision and values.
Our business is taking care of the community.
The Office Depot Disaster Relief Foundation was established in 1994 following Hurricane Andrew to assist communities after disasters such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and wildfires. It also provided interest-free loans to associates who experienced a catastrophic loss due to the natural disaster. The Foundation was restructured in 2006 to continue the disaster relief grant function. It expanded to allow for general charitable giving and Foundation initiatives under the new name “Office Depot Foundation, Inc.” The Foundation is registered as a 501(c)(3) with its own Board of Directors.
The Office Depot Foundation's mission is to LISTEN, LEARN, and CARE, while remaining focused on its strategic priorities known collectively as the “5X5 Program” for the next five years. Learn more about this and other initiatives at www.officedepotfoundation.org.

Our business is taking care of the environment.
Office Depot’s longstanding commitment to the environment is guided by the Company’s environmental vision to increasingly buy Green, be Green and sell Green. Since 2003, Office Depot has developed and implemented a number of Green initiatives, including:
- The Green Book, a catalog of thousands of environmentally-friendly products and educational content for Office Depot’s small, medium and large business customers.
- A $2.2 million Forest & Biodiversity Conservation Alliance through which Office Depot partnered with Conservation International, NatureServe and The Nature Conservancy to resolve real issues in the forestry sector to guide our sustainable efforts.
- A Paper Purchasing Policy through which Office Depot became the first office supply company to make Forest Stewardship Council certified paper widely available in the United States.
In addition, we’ve:
- Reduced our company’s overall carbon dioxide emissions output from 2005-2006 by 10.1 percent.
- Retrofitted the lighting in our company’s North American retail stores to T5 high-output fluorescent lighting, which is 35 percent more efficient than traditional, incandescent lighting.
- Replaced our fleet of “box trucks” to ultra-low-emission “Sprinter” vehicles, which are on average 40 percent more fuel-efficient than their predecessors and get an estimated 15 or more miles per gallon.
