Walmart Brazil Makes a Commitment to LED Sales Floor Lighting

LED lighting has been a priority for Walmart several years and there have been a few exciting developments in the past year alone. In the U.S., Walmart opened its first all-LED lit store in Ohio and introduced a new line of Great Value LED light bulbs.

But what’s happening in the U.S. is just one piece of the puzzle – we’re making progress on a global scale. And Walmart Brazil is the latest to commit to LED sales floor lighting in new projects, joining ASDA, as well as Walmart in Chile, China, Japan, Central America, and India. Working with Philips lighting, Walmart Brazil outfitted a new store in Indaiatuba, Sao Paolo, with 100% LED lighting, the first retail location Brazil to do so.

This store joins six other Walmart stores in Brazil that have adopted important energy saving measures such as installing occupancy sensors and timers in administrative environments, using intelligent cooling systems that optimize power consumption, and benefitting from skylights that enhance the penetration of natural light and block heat transfer.

Such moves are becoming standard for us as we continue to work toward our sustainability goals globally.
