The world’s largest grocer: Walmart & the future of food production
Kathleen MacLaughlin, the chief sustainability officer of the world’s largest grocer, discusses Walmart's work collaborating with farmers to improve yields and reduce emissions, and the role of big business in addressing food security in the future.
At Walmart, we're using our strengths to create economic opportunity for individuals and foster inclusive economic development, enhance the sustainability of food, apparel and general merchandise supply chains and strengthen the resilience of local communities. Last year, in addition to business initiatives investing in people and businesses in supply chains, we surpassed over $1.4 billion in giving worldwide, including $1 billion of food donations. I'm proud to be a part of this important work.
