At Walmart, we believe that committing to emission reductions is both beneficial to the environment and good for business. We believe that the integration of sustainable practices into operations and sourcing can have the benefits of competitive advantage, technological innovation, brand loyalty, and increased employee engagement. For this reason, we encourage every Walmart supplier to join Project Gigaton™, showcase the impact they are having, and take advantage of recognition opportunities. If you have good stories to share about how Walmart or Project Gigaton has helped your company improve sustainability performance, please let us know at GigatonStories@walmart.com.
Suppliers that commit to SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time Limited) goals, report emissions reductions during the annual reporting period, and agree to share their logo and goals publicly will be eligible for recognition as Sparking Change or Giga-Guru suppliers. To reach the Sparking Change agent recognition status, a supplier must report and set a goal in at least one pillar. To reach Giga-Guru status, a supplier must report in at least three pillars and set goals in at least three pillars.
