Protecting, Restoring and Sustainably Managing

Nature is important to all businesses around the world. It provides services and resources to product supply chains and the wider economy worth around $125 trillion per year, according to WWF. These services, including climate regulation, freshwater provision, and food production, are essential to life—and business—on this planet.

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have an ambitious strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect and replenish biodiversity, and secure resources for today and future generations through the protection, restoration, or more sustainable management of nature. Project Gigaton™ is Walmart’s platform to engage suppliers in this work.

Why Nature Matters

As the global population increases, forests, agricultural landscapes, and oceans that sustain our food and other resource systems are under greater stress to meet the growing demand.

What Walmart is Doing

In response to the growing climate crisis and to help combat the cascading loss of nature, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are committed to helping protect, restore, or more sustainably manage at least 50 million acres of land and one million square miles of ocean by 2030.

How Suppliers Can Take Action

Threats to nature, such as the unprecedented loss of species and the conversion of nearly half of the world’s forests, impact all of us.
