Walmart Announces Greenhouse Gas Goal

Monday, March 8, 2010

Mike Duke, president and CEO of Walmart, announces Walmart's goal to reduce greenhouse gases from the global supply chain. Last week, Walmart made another major step toward our efforts to become a more sustainable company when we announced a goal to eliminate 20 million metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our global supply chain by the end of 2015.

Walmart will do this by working with our supplier partners and finding opportunities throughout the product lifecycle -- from the sourcing of the raw materials to the manufacturing of a product to its transportation and how customers use it, dispose of it and recycle it.

This goal represents one and a half times the company's estimated global carbon footprint growth over the next five years and is the equivalent of taking more than 3.8 million cars off the road for a year.

The announcement was made in collaboration with Environmental Defense Fund and was followed by a Web-based discussion moderated by "I think this is real leadership," said Fred Krupp, president of Environmental Defense Fund, "Walmart is looking at the big picture."

If you missed the announcement on Thursday, a replay of the webcast is available at

We'd like to know your thoughts and reaction to this new goal for Walmart. Please take a moment to provide your feedback by completing a very brief survey.

Thank you for your support as we continue to make progress on this important issue.

Sincerely, Leslie Dach Executive Vice President Corporate Affairs & Government Relations
