A Billion Tons of Sustainable Opportunity
It’s an ambitious and laudable goal from a company that has worked to incorporate greater levels of sustainability into its operations since 2005.
It also signals an opportunity.
While working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Walmart suppliers can drive budget certainty and risk mitigation while potentially saving hundreds of millions of dollars on their own energy costs. In fact, the country’s largest energy users waste $80 billion in electricity and natural gas expenses every year.
What’s Your Opportunity?
If you are already on the path to greater sustainability — or just at the beginning — Edison Energy can accelerate your program, or get you started on a strategic footing.
We’re an independent energy advisory and integration services company, helping Fortune 1000 organizations lower costs, mitigate risk, and improve sustainability performance.
- We’ve helped companies successfully purchase more than 1.5 gigawatts of renewable energy in the U.S. and Mexico, making us one of the country’s leading renewable energy advisors.
- Edison Energy counts one in four of the Fortune 50 — such as General Motors, Microsoft, and Home Depot — as customers.
To participate in Project Gigaton, suppliers set an energy-related GHG emissions reduction goal, the beginning of any energy optimization program. We can help companies understand and align both their current energy portfolios and their future needs with a Project Gigaton goal by addressing two major strategic approaches:
