Suppliers beware: big box shippers want to cut their emissions further. Retail behemoth Walmart has vowed to slash 1bn tonnes of emissions from its supply chain by 2030 as part of its Project Gigaton sustainability initiative. Over the past decade, the company has culled 40m tonnes of CO2, but it believes with the support of NGOs, including the WWF, it will be able to create an emissions reduction toolkit to highlight the business case for suppliers to join the cause. Achieving the 1bn-tonne cut would be comparable to taking more than 211m passenger vehicles off US roads for a year, and is more than the annual emissions of Germany.
