EVP, Supply Chain & Logistics, Walmart
Walmart Canada has made strong commitments for improving sustainability in their own operations and Susan and her team are working throughout the company to ensure these commitments are more than just words. Walmart Canada has already achieved an 88% waste diversion rate, launched the Walmart Canada Plastics Charter to reduce plastic waste, and launched Project Gigaton, which works extensively with suppliers to reduce GHG emissions. They are investing $175 million to build a sustainable, zero-waste fulfillment centre in Surrey, B.C., and will use 100% alternative power to fuel their fleet by 2028. Walmart has committed to achieving zero food waste and ensuring their private brand packaging is 100% recyclable by 2025.
