BENTONVILLE — US retailer Walmart says it is more than halfway to its 'Project Gigaton' goal of reducing or avoiding one billion metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its product supply chains by 2030.

More than 4,500 of the company's suppliers, which have engaged with Project Gigaton since its launch in 2017, report a cumulative total of more than 574 million metric tons of emissions reduced or avoided so far.

Walmart launched the initiative because the bulk of GHG emissions in the retail sector are in product supply chains - Scope 3 - rather than Scope 2, the direct result of a company's own operations, or Scope 2, the indirect result of purchased energy.
