We understand that for a business to last, it must have a fundamental reason for being – which is found in the value it creates not only for shareholders, but for the world. That’s why, for more than 15 years, Walmart has been collaborating with others to drive positive impact across global supply chains. Our focus on climate, nature, waste and people in supply chains has strengthened our business and communities in measurable ways. See Walmart’s ESG report for more highlights.
Walmart's journey toward regeneration:
Placing nature and people at the heart of our business
Regenerating means restoring, renewing and replenishing in addition to conserving. It means adopting regenerative practices in agriculture, forest, and fisheries management – while advancing prosperity and equity for customers, associates and people who participate in our product supply chains. And it means eliminating waste along the product chain and decarbonizing our operations.
The climate and our future
Harvesting enough wind, solar and other energy sources to power our facilities with 100% renewable energy by 2035.
We power around 36% of our operations with renewable energy.
Zeroing out emissions from all of our vehicles, including long-haul trucks, by 2040.
Transitioning to low-impact refrigerants for cooling and electrified equipment for heating in our stores, clubs, data centers and distribution centers by 2040.
As temperatures continue rising, climate change is quickly becoming a global climate crisis.
