Walmart has launched a new sustainability platform, which invites suppliers to join Walmart in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from their operations and supply chains. The initiative, called "Project Gigaton," will provide an emissions reduction toolkit to suppliers to eliminate one gigaton of emissions, particularly in manufacturing. Walmart is the first retailer with a verified science-based target emissions-reduction plan and has set long-term sustainability goals.
