FREDERICK, Md. - According to data released today by the institute for local self-reliance Walmart’s climate emissions continue to rise.
This is after Walmart pledged to become more of an environmental leader.
ILSR says the company scaled back its renewable power projects here in the U.S. Its clean energy projects fell 16% since 2013.
ILSR's director says other national retailers are generating a sizable share of their power from clean sources and Walmart has made very little progress, especially in the last few years.
No further comment has been made by Walmart.
