ESG

For Walmart de México y Centroamérica, Shared Value implies the creation of economic, environmental, and social value for all our stakeholders. This increases the company’s competitiveness, while simultaneously improving the social and economic conditions of those with whom we interact.

A company of our size - with 238,972 associates, 2,200 million customers, 42,224 suppliers, and presence in 675 cities in the region - can and must contribute significantly to sustainable development. This is why we believe in our approach: Shared Value.

Our company has always been a value-based and ethically driven organization, guided by our principles that drive our decisions and leadership.

Each of these actions is aligned with our purpose of saving customers’ money and helping them live a better life, with the vision of contributing to improve the quality of life of families in the region.

We achieve this through our way of working, together with all our stakeholders.

To maximize Shared Value, we aim not only to run a good omnichannel business, but also to make largescale and lasting improvements to the ecosystems most relevant to our business.

We set our ESG priorities based on relevance to our company purpose, product categories and key markets, as well as our ability to create change, and the importance to our customers and other stakeholders.

 

Together, we generate Shared Value to society and the planet to enhance economic, environmental, and social development.
