AboutWalmart Energy Transformation   

The Walmart Energy Transformation strategy aims to decarbonize our operations while capturing emerging new value streams that help catalyze societal decarbonization.

We have come from across Walmart, utilities, developers, banking, clean energy consulting and environmental NGOs. We are innovators and change agents determined to make an impact.  We are analytical and entrepreneurial; thoughtful and practical.
