Associate Professor of
International Business,
Darla Moore School of
Business 
The Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina continues our new monthly business education breakfast series for the state’s business owners and managers.

Sustainability Strategies from Walmart

Retailing giant Walmart is usually private when it comes to their business strategies. But the Moore School, in partnership with the Sam Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, gained unprecedented access to Walmart to research the company’s corporate sustainability efforts. Having conducted over 25 interviews within Walmart, we’ll give you an inside look at why Walmart initiated a sustainability strategy, what they accomplished, and what worked and didn’t work.

We will learn about Walmart’s experience developing a sustainability program and discuss the opportunities and challenges of implementing a sustainability program within their own organization.

Given the wide range of goals assigned to sustainability programs, it is important to understand why did Walmart initiate a sustainability strategy? What did they do?  What have they been able to accomplish? What have they found difficult to accomplish?

The breakfast series is part of the Moore School’s commitment to help South Carolina businesses compete globally and create jobs locally. It will feature speakers from the Moore School’s faculty, as well as local and national experts on an array of business topics.

The cost is $15 per person in advance. Or, you may pay $25 at the door.

Seating is limited. Register now to guarantee your place by completing the form below or calling 803.777.2231 or 1.800.393.2362.
