Walmart's vision and role in the development of American Lighthouses is to foster a stakeholder involved environment for long term investments in American Manufacturing, to develop manufacturing ecosystems that will create high-quality and innovative products, and to regenerate regional economies and our environment and support American jobs.
Walmart’s goal is to help identify and overcome top-down barriers to U.S. production. The American Lighthouse initiative will be a collaborative approach involving multiple stakeholders who share a common goal — supporting more American jobs.
The idea behind the lighthouses is simple — get the right players from the right places at the table. By bringing together key regions and various stakeholders, we can make the supply chain more efficient. The aim is to bring U.S. manufacturing back in a sustainable, long-term way.
