Through our partnerships and policies, Lowe's continues to safeguard those resources for future generations. Since 2000, Lowe's has partnered with our suppliers to support the protection and conservation of forests. Guided by our wood policy, we seek to ensure that all wood products sold in our stores are harvested responsibly, from well-managed, nonendangered forests.
Lowe's commitment to global forest conservation is also reflected in our continued support of the Lacey Act, an effort to end illegal logging globally. We actively engage with environmental and industry groups, our suppliers and government agencies to help interpret and implement this important initiative.
Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation has contributed more than $5 million to The Nature Conservancy since 2005 to protect our forests, and we expanded that work in 2011 through partnerships with American Forests and the National Park Foundation.
