Walmart Sustainability Initiative & Suppliers


To kick off the new season, Neile Jones talks with Walmart and several suppliers about sustainability.

Topics include Walmart’s sustainability efforts, expectations for their supplier partners, and how Walmart measures success – as well as the resources available to guide suppliers toward a more sustainable supply chain.

Three examples of successful, sustainable suppliers are Tyson, Eco-Vet Furniture, and KYYA Chocolate. Guests from these companies discuss what sustainability means to their business, why it is so important, and how they put their values into action.

PLUS: A quick chat with Walmart’s CEO, Doug McMillon.
