Project Gigaton 101

Project Gigaton is a Walmart initiative to avoid one billion metric tons (a gigaton) of greenhouse gases from the global value chain by 2030. Through Project Gigaton, suppliers can take their sustainability efforts to the next level through goal-setting, and get credit from Walmart for the progress you make. Since the program was introduced in 2017, hundreds of Walmart suppliers have gotten on board by committing to reduce emissions. Collectively, we’ve made great progress, but there is still a long way to go.

There are just three steps to participate in Project Gigaton:

Step One: Set a Goal
Work within your organization to set an emissions reduction goal; all goals should be SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time Limited

Step Two: Sign Up
Visit the Walmart Sustainability Hub, where you can join us, and add and update your goals

Step Three: Bank Your Impact
Report your impact each year and get recognition for your progress; this year, results should be reported through your Project Gigaton account each year
More information on the annual survey questions can be found in pillar pages below

The goal you set is up to you - we welcome goals big, small, old and new, so please identify the right target for your organization and join us.
