These new commitments reinforce the sustainability goals Walmart established in 2005: to be supplied 100 percent by renewable energy; to create zero waste; and to sell products that sustain people and the environment. Renewables and energy efficiency have long been part of Walmart's strategy to operate at every day low cost while also allowing Walmart to be a good steward of the environment.Since 2005, Walmart has been innovating in renewable energy and increasing energy efficiency. Walmart's buildings are currently powered by 1.1 billion kWh of Walmart-driven renewable energy – enough for a U.S. city of 250,000 people. Added to the renewable energy the company receives from the grid, today, 21 percent of its buildings' total electricity and 17 percent of buildings' total energy use is currently supplied by renewable energy.
