Walmart said Monday it will achieve its zero target without carbon-offsets — measures that reduce carbon emissions in some areas to compensate for higher carbon emissions in others.The retail giant said it will hit its target by powering its facilities with 100% renewable energy by 2035. Currently, around 29% of its energy is from renewable sources, it said.
By 2040 it will also use electric vehicles with zero emissions, and adopt more environmentally friendly systems for cooling and heating across its sites.Walmart also said it will protect, manage, or restore at least 50 million acres of land and one million square miles of ocean by 2030. The company said it has conserved almost 1.5 million acres of land since 2005 as part of a partnership with Acres for America, at an average rate of just under 100,000 acres a year. Doug McMillon, Walmart's CEO, said: "The commitments we're making today not only aim to decarbonize Walmart's global operations, they also put us on the path to becoming a regenerative company – one that works to restore, renew and replenish in addition to preserving our planet, and encourages others to do the same."
