USAgNet - 09/22/2020

Walmart announced it is doubling down on addressing the growing climate crisis by targeting zero emissions across the company's global operations by 2040. Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are also committing to help protect, manage or restore at least 50 million acres of land and one million square miles of ocean by 2030 to help combat the cascading loss of nature threatening the planet.

"We want to play an important role in transforming the world's supply chains to be regenerative. We face a growing crisis of climate change and nature loss and we all need to take action with urgency," said Doug McMillon, president and chief executive officer, Walmart, Inc. "For 15 years, we have been partnering to do the work and continually raising our sustainability ambitions across climate action, nature, waste and people.

The company plans to harvest enough wind, solar and other renewable energy sources to power its facilities with 100 percent renewable energy by 2035; electrifying and zeroing out emissions from all of its vehicles, including long-haul trucks, by 2040; and transitioning to low-impact refrigerants for cooling and electrified equipment for heating in its stores, clubs, and data and distribution centers by 2040.
