We believe that an environmental, social and governance (ESG) program is essential to our business practice and a core responsibility to our company, our business partners, our investors, our employees and ultimately people throughout the globe. We acknowledge the necessity of adopting sustainability as a company-wide initiative and we are working diligently to develop a comprehensive approach that addresses Walton’s impacts.

Throughout our history, Walton has considered how communities are built, but more importantly, the people who live in them. This year, we are formalizing a program based on ESG principles in order to continue on a sustainable path toward an equitable future. As a part of the development process, we are reviewing our past efforts as well as our current operational policies and procedures to create a program that will factor in goals, action, accountability and a thorough reporting process. The foundation of our program is a value-based approach that is focused on a balance between environmental, social, and economic prosperity.    

We look forward to sharing more details with you in the months ahead.
