Advancing Sustainability

Advancing Sustainability

We understand that for a business to last, it must have a fundamental reason for being – which is found in the value it creates not only for shareholders, but for the world. That’s why, for more than 15 years, Walmart has been collaborating with others to drive positive impact across global supply chains. Our focus on climate, nature, waste and people in supply chains has strengthened our business and communities in measurable ways.

Building on years of leadership on environmental issues and in creating opportunities for people, Walmart has embarked on an ambitious mission: to become a regenerative company – one dedicated to placing nature and humanity at the center of our business practices. 

Becoming a regenerative company means that we have a lasting, net positive impact on people and the planet through our products, services and business practices. It means addressing societal challenges in a way that strengthens our business and builds trust. And it means believing that the success of our company depends on delivering value to all our stakeholders – customers, associates, suppliers, shareholders, communities and the planet.
