Last year, Walmart released details of a new company strategy called For the Greener Good, incorporating partnerships, business initiatives and products for positive environmental change.
“For the Greener Good represents a new company mindset,” said Mario Pilozzi, President and CEO, Wal-Mart Canada Corp. “Whether we’re introducing our managers and suppliers to the ideas of David Suzuki, challenging vendors to reduce packaging, eliminating waste in our stores, or showcasing greener products for customers, we’re committed to knowing more and doing more about the environment.”

I chatted with some of Walmarts reps from the show and it seems like a great initiative (main goals are to produce zero waste; to be powered 100 per cent by renewable energy; and, to make more environmentally preferable products available to customers.) However, I recently walked into my local Walmart and really did not notice any difference. We’ll see how things turn it out. Nevertheless, it is a great step.
