Walmart recently hosted its first Sustainable Product Expo, bringing some of the world’s largest suppliers under the same roof to discuss sustainability. The Expo is dedicated to the following goals:

  • Expanding sustainable products
  • Reducing waste
  • Increasing accessibility of food products
  • Expanding recycling capabilities in municipalities across the U.S.

Walmart also partnered with over a dozen major corporations — including Monsanto, Unilever, and Pepsi — to advance innovation in sustainable agriculture and recycling.

"We can do so much more to make a bigger difference for communities and stakeholders impacted by our business. Innovative work is happening daily, but many gaps and missed opportunities remain," said Walmart CEO, Doug McMillon.
