Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have invested in a variety of tools and resources that can help suppliers move from assessing their nature risk exposure to collaborating with others. These tools have been built to provide direction, methodologies, mapping as well as useful guidance on designing roadmaps and strategies that place nature and humanity at the center of our suppliers’ nature strategies.
Assess Nature Footprint
The Sustainability Consortium’s Commodity Mapping Tool helps companies identify potential sourcing landscapes and the associated environmental and social risks of agricultural commodities produced in those areas.
Set Effective and Impactful Goals
The Accountability Framework initiative (AFi) supports companies and other stakeholders in setting strong supply chain goals, taking effective action, and tracking progress toward deforestation-free and conversion-free supply chains that respect indigenous, local, and worker rights.
Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment is the home of OpenTEAM – an open-source initiative and data sharing platform that connects farmers and their sustainability data to supply chain initiatives in a standardized, transmissible format.
The World Resource Institute’s Global Forest Watch and Climate Risk Tool allows up-to-date monitoring of forest conditions around the world to enable rapid action through data and technology.
Strive for Impact
Field to Market’s Continuous Improvement Accelerator is a registry of sustainability projects across the US row crop sector where members can register, report progress, and link with potential partners.
