Walmart has launched Project Gigaton, a first-of-its-kind initiative to mobilize its suppliers, the largest supply chain in the world, to take one gigaton of carbon out of the atmosphere by reducing emissions. The World Wildlife Fund, a MacArthur grantee, is helping Walmart with the project by designing tools the supplier network can use to help them make changes in energy use, agricultural and logging practices, packaging decisions, and waste management that will limit emissions. The goal is to reduce emissions by one gigaton by 2030, the equivalent of removing 211 million passenger vehicles off US roads for one year.
