Using our strengths to make a difference
At Walmart, we’re committed to using our size and scale for good. Not just for our customers, or even our associates, suppliers, and their families, but also for the people in our communities and around the world that we will never meet. We’re proud to say that the work we do makes a real difference on the real issues that matter to all of us, and drives meaningful change in a way that no other company can.
Innovative thinking. Leadership through service. And above all, an unwavering commitment to saving people money. It’s what makes us the business we are today, and shapes the company we will be tomorrow. Sound like a lot of work? We’re just getting started.
We’re committed to nothing less than transforming the future of commerce. Building on our everyday low price model, we’re integrating online and in-store shopping for the next generation. It’s an approach that has delivered growth, leverage and returns for our shareholders.
A satisfied customer has always been our first priority, but it wouldn’t be possible without the thousands of businesses around the world that we’re proud to call Walmart suppliers. We work with these companies, along with NGOs and government leaders, to ensure that everything we sell is produced responsibly.
