March 13, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


Walmart has introduced a new wave of plastic waste reduction commitments and it will look to achieve these through its vast US supply chain ecosystem. The company announced the new commitments at its annual supplier forum this week and confirmed that it will affect more than 30,000 Stock Keeping Units (SKU) within Walmart’s portfolio. Walmart identified that it will focus heavily on its private brand packaging as it will look to encourage national brand suppliers to follow in its sustainable footsteps.
