We are writing today to share we have decided to postpone Walmart’s Sustainability Milestone Summit, which was scheduled to take place April 22-23 in Bentonville, Arkansas.
As the COVID–19 (coronavirus) situation continues to evolve, the health and safety of our associates, customers and partners is our greatest priority. While we would like nothing more than to bring together sustainability leaders from across the globe, we believe postponing the meeting is the right decision.
We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to reschedule the summit later this year. Until that time, we look forward to continuing to work with you virtually to accelerate progress on critical sustainability priorities around climate, waste, nature and responsible recruitment.
