We invest in initiatives that preserve natural resources and also lower greenhouse gas emissions.
By 2025, Walmart aims to be powered 50 percent by renewable energy and reduce emissions in its own operations by 18 percent from 2015 levels by increasing energy efficiency in its buildings and trucks, transitioning to renewable energy sources and improving refrigerants management. In addition, Walmart aims to galvanize transformative action through Project Gigaton, a global effort that invites suppliers to join Walmart in its our goal to avoid one billion metric tons of emissions in its global supply chain by 2030. Learn more about progress in our Environmental, Social & Governance report.
Our philanthropic investments focus on funding initiatives that have the dual benefits of lowering emissions and helping to preserve natural resources. Learn more about our initiatives here.

Soil Health Institute
To increase the adoption of better soil health management, the Walmart Foundation is supporting the Soil Health Institute’s efforts to create and expand micro-communities of cotton growers across the U.S., where growers can learn about soil health and regularly discuss soil health promoting tactics with peers. The institute is also documenting environmental and economic benefits that result from adopting soil health management systems, which may impact carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas emissions and water quality and availability indicators.
