Should Walmart use buyer incentives to help green its supply chain?
Walmart had a problem. While the company took many actions to green up its sustainable chain, including the use of sustainability index and scorecards, its buyers still didn't take sustainability into account during their decision-making process. So what did Walmart do about it? According to Andrew Winston, the company's solution was very simple: adding sustainability performance to its buyers' performance evaluation. In other words, Walmart chose to join a growing number of companies that link compensation with sustainability, hoping this incentive will ensure its buyers will start looking at sustainability differently.
