COP26 Talks: WWF's Carter Roberts x Walmart CEO Doug McMillon
The role of the private sector in climate action has been a major theme in Glasgow with policymakers and corporations focused on what companies can do to decarbonize their supply chains. While such strategies will help save the planet, they may also be the biggest economic opportunity since the Industrial Revolution. Walmart is no stranger to this concept.

In 2020, Walmart committed to become a regenerative company, and earlier this year helped to galvanize the retail sector in the "Race to Zero."
