Program Details

Walmart’s Project Gigaton has inspired its suppliers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to achieve a central goal: remove one billon metric tons of carbon from its global value chain by 2030.

A new renewable energy initiative—the Gigaton Power Purchase Agreement (GPPA) Program—directly supports Project Gigaton’s purpose. Its goal is to accelerate renewable energy adoption and enable bold climate action via an aggregate power purchase agreement (PPA).

This signature program will enable Walmart suppliers to join a first-of-its kind, aggregated approach to collective contracting for renewable energy, giving access to utility-scale PPAs to suppliers who may not otherwise be able to participate in the market. The program aims to accelerate Project Gigaton and drive the development of one gigawatt of new renewable energy generation within five years.

Here is how the GPPA Program works:

Walmart, one of the world’s leading corporate renewable energy purchasers, and Schneider Electric, one of the world’s leading renewable energy advisors, are collaborating to bring this program to life.
