Some of the biggest CEOs in Canada come together for the Walmart Green Student Challenge. I took this rare opportunity to ask them: Where is sustainability going for Canadian industries? Walmart, Coca-Cola, and Unilever already share best practices for their common goals in sustainability. Now they want to see more suppliers come on board.
How does Coca-Cola integrate sustainability into their operations? For several years its facility in Brampton, Ontario, one of its largest in North America, has been transforming its manufacturing and distribution to save energy, reduce carbon footprint, water usage, and material usage. In this case study we look at the goals, implementation, and progress of the programs put in place by this $20 billion food and beverage giant.
Walmart recently released its 2010 Global Sustainability Report. Being the world’s largest public corporation, Walmart has enormous influence directly and indirectly to businesses around them. Whether your business has direct dealings with Walmart or not, it is worth taking notes on their targets, achievements, and future plans. In this post, I highlight three areas of their Canadian operations: energy efficiency, waste reduction, and packaging reduction. See how Walmart Canada save the environment while saving money.
