Global Responsibility

Using our strengths to make a difference
At Walmart, we aim to use our strengths and collaborate with others to transform the systems on which we all rely, including advancing our ambitious commitments and goals within the areas of opportunity, sustainability, community and diversity, equity and inclusion.
