Walmart to Save Energy and Achieve Sustainable Goals with GE Lighting

GE Lighting has been the LED lighting supplier for Walmart. By converting Walmart shoppers from traditional light bulbs to energy-efficient LEDs over the past two years, it has saved 1.2 billion kWh of electricity*.

Walmart has initiated Project Gigaton which aims to collectively eliminate one gigaton of greenhouse gas emissions through its supply chain by 2030. Suppliers of Walmart have been encouraged to take effort for reaching the sustainable goal. GE Lighting is one of the significant supporters with its LED lighting products.

According to GE Lighting, by switching customers from traditional to LED bulbs over the past two years, shoppers will save more than US$2 billion collectively over the life of the LED bulbs.** LEDs use 70 to 90 percent less energy than traditional lighting options and last 15 to 25 times longer.

“GE Lighting is demonstrating that innovative suppliers can deliver high-quality, sustainable products as part of the Walmart everyday low price promise,” said Laura Phillips, Walmart’s Senior Vice President for Global Sustainability

Daraius Patell, North American Consumer Leader at GE Lighting noted, “GE Lighting is proud to support Walmart’s sustainability efforts as we help consumers shift to energy-saving LEDs.”

GE’s commercial LEDs from Current, powered by GE, also are being used across Walmart stores and facilities, from refrigerated display cases to parking lot and interior lighting. This LED initiative supports Walmart’s science-based target to reduce emissions in its own operations by 18 percent by 2025.

As part of an ongoing commitment to energy efficiency, Walmart has installed more than 1.5 million LED fixtures across more than 6,000 stores, parking lots, distribution centers and corporate offices in 10 countries. With energy costs traditionally representing one of the company’s largest operating expenses, the monumental energy initiative over the past decade has reduced lighting energy consumption and reduced costs by more than US$100 million.
