Andrew Telfer

Manager, Sustainability, Walmart Canada

Andrew’s focus has been to embed sustainability into Walmart’s business and culture.  His influence has been felt in supplier packaging optimization (decreased GHG by 16%), lighting retrofits, Canada’s first solely LED lit big-box store, enhanced waste diversion (75%), and identifying hot spots in certain categories to help merchandisers look for alternatives.  The biggest long-term impact may come from instilling a sustainability metric into 150 buyers’ annual evaluations.  Andrew is also a member of Walmart’s Global Sustainability Leaders team, and the Retail Council’s sustainability steering committee.
