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.
