The goal of the Walmart sustainability case project is to develop teaching cases and notes that lead students through an in-depth analysis of Walmart’s efforts to develop and implement an ambitious corporate sustainability strategy. To accomplish this task, professors from the Sam M. Walton College of Business, University of Arkansas, and the Moore School of Business, University of South Carolina, collaborated to write a series of cases that explores Walmart’s sustainability journey from different positions and perspectives. During the project, our team conducted over 30 interviews that included over 25 Walmart employees who worked on the front lines developing and implementing the company’s new sustainability strategy.
