Walmart Pledges Zero Emissions By 2040

Walmart, which generated $524 billion in revenue last year and employs some 2.2 million associates around the world – recently made headlines with an ambitious pledge to reach zero emissions by 2040. The multinational company also declared a commitment to restore at least 50 million acres of land and one million square miles of ocean by 2030.
