Walmart To Reduce Its GHG Emissions By 20 MN Tons By 2015

February 25, 2010: 01:11 AM EST
In a mark of its commitment to sustainability goals, Walmart announced it is to remove 20 million metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its global supply chain by the end of 2015, an amount estimated at 1.5x of the company’s total global carbon footprint over next five years. Walmart will work with a series of external advisors - PricewaterhouseCoopers, ClearCarbon Inc., the Carbon Disclosure Project and the Applied Sustainability Center (ASC) – in a detailed review of its processes and product lines. Part of the effort will involved estimating lifecycle GHC emissions for product categories and targeting the highest emitters. The company says it will work with suppliers to help achieve its goals. Fred Krupp, president of Environmental Defense Fund said that Walmart’s move “…transform a vast supply chain here at home, and around the world.”
