Walmart “on track” to end landfill waste by 2025

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said on Monday that it is on track to meet many of its goals for making its operations more environmentally sustainable, but it fell short of some benchmarks.

Walmart CEO Mike Duke said in June that environmental sustainability is one of the company’s top five priorities. Even small improvements in Walmart’s operations can make a big difference because of the massive scale of its retail outlets and global supply chain.

"Understandably, in some areas our progress is slower than we would like, and sometimes we hit temporary roadblocks," Duke said in a statement on Monday, as the company released an annual update of its environmental sustainability efforts.
