Description:

Walmart launched the roadmap to 2025 Chemical Management Program in 2021 after years of supplier engagement. What does it take for Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, to achieve the ambitious goals set along this roadmap? Walmart believes that industry partnerships and digitalization are the key enablers, so it has partnered with leading experts from BluWin and TÜV Rheinland, as well as smart digital chemical management platform The BHive. By combining unique technical strengths, Walmart and the three industry partners have collaborated to create an ecosystem that will help Walmart roll out its CMP program on a global scale and drive continuous improvement to ensure milestone goals can be met. This session covers Walmart’s vision for Chemical Management Program, as well as its journey in the program so far. The three industry partners will share insights into their part of the collaboration and how they work hand-in-hand to provide ongoing support to Walmart's supply chain partners and ensure roadmap milestones are met.
