Walmart Goes All In On Sustainability
Walmart president and CEO Doug McMillon detailed the company’s environmental road map this week at the Net Impact Conference in Philadelphia. Energy efficiency will be a key enabler of the company’s efforts.
The company aims to use renewables sources for half its energy needs and reduce emissions by 18 percent by 2025.
The company plans to send no waste to landfill in key markets by 2025 as well. Walmart already is a good part of the way there: Seventy-five percent of its waste was diverted from landfills globally last year.
McMillon also said that Walmart is committed to training employees at all levels will enable them to effectively execute a variety of company programs.
In June, Walmart and Alabama Power agreed to build a 72 MW solar facility outside of LaFayette, AL.
