The US retail firm, Walmart, has announced that since launching its Project Gigaton initiative in April 2017, its suppliers have saved more than 20mn metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions in global value chains.
The ultimately initiative aims to reduce emissions from the company’s global value chain by 1 gigaton by 2030.
Project Gigaton has recently expanded in China and the UK, raising its supplier participation to over 400, spanning across 30 countries.
“In its first year, Project Gigaton has helped to inspire action that has led to the avoidance of millions of metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions and has expanded into an international campaign that includes the participation of several hundred suppliers,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer for Walmart, Kathleen McLaughlin.
