The A.C.T. Program

Walmart's Next Step in the Recovery Process

Many of our best opportunities were created out of necessity.
- Sam Walton

     At Walmart, we aim to use our strengths and collaborate with others to transform the systems on which we all rely, including advancing our ambitious commitments and goals within the priority areas of Disaster Relief. We believe that our work in these areas is not only beneficial for our business bottom line, but also creates shared value for customers and society.

     Beyond producing a whole systems change and shared value, our approach to global responsibility also underscores the importance of true integration into our core business, drawing upon our core capabilities and strengths, and collective action through collaboration with supplier and industry partners, and key stakeholders.

"Disaster knows no boundaries, Neither does Walmart's Response Efforts"
Walmart's 2017 Global Responsibilities Report

     While the year 2017 may have been great for Walmart, it was a difficult time for many of our family and friends across the globe. With natural disasters becoming progressively more intense and destructive, Walmart has had to re-examine its process of helping our communities in their time of need. Inside this proposal we will explain why the Associate Crisis Team(A.C.T.) Program is Walmart's next step in helping speed up the recovery process; how Walmart has responded to past Emergency Situations, Are we, as Walmart, utilizing all of our resources and What is and How will the A.C.T. Program move Walmart ahead in relief efforts?
