The American network Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are committed to “protect or restore” at least 50 million acres of land and 1 million square kilometers of ocean by 2030. The company also intends to completely eliminate hazardous emissions within 20 years.
These efforts will help “tackle the cascading effects of climate change threatening the planet,” the official blog said. To do this, Walmart says it plans to harvest enough wind, solar, and “other energy” to power its facilities with 100% renewable energy by 2035.
The retailer will also work to electrify and zero emissions from all of its vehicles, including long-distance trucks, and will migrate electrified cooling and heating equipment in its stores, clubs, information and distribution centers. The company also continues to work with suppliers on the Project Gigaton initiative, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1 billion metric tons by 2030.
