Since Walmart first launched our sustainability goals in 2005, we have learned that incorporating sustainability in everyday work is good for business, good for people and good for the environment. It has made us a better company and showed us that when we work with others, we can make a greater impact.
That’s why in 2016, Walmart set a new goal to reduce emissions in our supply chain by 1 gigaton (1 billion metric tons) by 2030. To achieve this goal, Walmart is launching Project Gigaton - an opportunity for suppliers and organizations to join Walmart in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the supply chain.
Companies can join Project Gigaton by submitting their own emissions target, or submitting goals that fall in one or more of the six areas below. Click on each to get more information and submit a goal.
In conjunction with the Sustainability Index, the Project Gigaton survey will be sent to all suppliers that have completed the Join Us form. The Project Gigaton survey runs October 2 through November 2. This free survey is conducted by the Sustainability Consortium and will gather information on your company’s submitted goal(s), metrics and will help estimate your emissions reduction. More information on survey questions can be found in each of the Project Gigaton focus area pages below. Join us today so your company receives the survey.
