Because most emissions in the retail sector exist in product supply chains rather than stores and distribution centers, we created Project Gigaton. It’s our initiative to engage suppliers in climate action, along with NGOs and other stakeholders. Through Project Gigaton, we aim to avoid one billion metric tons (a gigaton) of greenhouse gases from the global value chain by 2030 — and we need YOU to help us get there.

How to Participate
For suppliers just getting started on their emissions reduction journey, setting a target in one or more of these six key areas might be the right place to start: Energy, Waste, Packaging, Agriculture, Forests, or Product Use.
For companies that have worked on sustainability for some time, or for those ready to progress towards a broad emissions reduction strategy, setting an emissions reduction target that captures your work across many areas might be the right next step.
Making a Difference — Together
To date, more than 2,300 suppliers have formally signed on, making Project Gigaton one of the largest private sector consortiums for climate action. Check out our Supplier Recognition page to see how they're making a difference.
