Corporations That Take Sustainability Leadership Seriously

A select group of very large corporations make many of the headlines about sustainability. Partly, it’s a function of their leadership in publically announcing ambitious goals for innovative practices and strategies. It’s also a function of their scale, because big moves toward sustainability by large corporations have the possibility of making major changes. That makes for big news. Walmart can now be added to the list of the usual suspects in this category. The company has announced very aggressive sustainability goals to be achieved by 2025, joining other large businesses—Pepsico, General Mills, Kellogg, and the many more you read about throughout the 3BL Media network—that have recently put forward similarly ambitious goals. With sustainability as a core component of their strategy, these corporations are showing the way to business, better.
