ECO:nomics: Walmart on Sustainability vs. Profit

By  Walmart Staff April 07, 2014

Mike Duke

Walmart’s former President and CEO Mike Duke was at The Wall Street Journal’s ECO:nomics conference last week.  He sat down with WSJ Editor in Chief Gerard Baker to discuss Walmart’s sustainability journey and our responsibility to lead. 


Why Sustainability?

Mike explains that our sustainability journey began and continues today for four main reasons: 

1. It's the right thing to do for our communities, our stores and the planet;

2. We listened to our customers and recognized that they want more sustainable products from an environmentally responsible company;

3. It's good for our business, in that we've found new ways to grow profits through saving resources;

4. It's what our associates want.

I went to your store and asked for a camera. The brought out camera had it open looking through it and told me it would be at customer service. I looked around went to customer service paid for camera. I looked in box that was opened and camera nor lens was in plastic. I looked at lens it was dirty. No caps on lens or camera body., no battery. I went back to customer service and she said I had to wait until today cause everyone was gone. I went back to day and no one want to fix this situatio

I have talked to several managers and none of them knows what's going on. Meaning there is no communication between the managing teams from one shift to another
