Bentonville, Ark.-based Walmart unveiled a blog on sustainability, which went live Jan. 3 and features posts from Andrea Thomas, the retailer’s senior vice president of sustainability.

I invite you to visit this blog often to learn about the latest in sustainability – ours and yours. We will share our thoughts and ideas, and I hope you will, too.”

Thomas outlined some of Walmart’s broad stroke sustainability goals, including zero waste and increased use of renewable energy, but primarily used the inaugural post to invite readers to participate in the blog and share their thoughts and opinions.

Thomas concluded her post posing three questions to readers:

  • What do you think are the biggest challenges to sustainability?
  • What do you wish we, as a company, could do to address an environmental or social issue?
  • How could we help you reach your own sustainability goals?

“Together, we really can create a more sustainable world and a brighter future” Thomas wrote. “Thank you for joining us on this journey. We look forward to reading your comments, hearing your stories and exploring your ideas.”
