Walmart ranked No. 26 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.

 

Walmart’s Acres for America program has surpassed its goal, supporting the conservation of more than 2 million acres of land in the U.S. The milestone was aided by $3.1 million in new grants.

“Our commitment to a greener world continues. This is vital wildlife habitat, which will now remain protected,” the company shared on LinkedIn.

Acres for America launched in 2005 when Walmart partnered with The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to catalyze conservation of national lands, support wildlife habitats and benefit local communities.

“With this set of grants, our Acres for America program has reached the milestone of supporting the conservation of more than 2 million acres, helping protect and restore nature in many of the same communities where Walmart operates across the country,” Hunter Hart, Senior Vice President, Realty, Walmart U.S. said in a press release. “NFWF and conservation partners in local communities have helped the program play an important role in preserving vital habitats over the past 18 years.”
