2010 awards and recognition

The various awards we receive each year confirm that the decisions we make are positively impacting people's lives and the environment. Some of the awards listed below are also a result of our participation in selected surveys, which provides us the opportunity to share our practices and validate our efforts, particularly in the areas of diversity and inclusion.

Inclusive validation

We earned 85 out of a possible 100 points in the Hispanic Association of Corporate Responsibility's (HACR) 2010 Corporate Inclusion Index, validating the work behind our commitment to build an inclusive Walmart. We were among the highest-rated companies examined in the Index.

HACR, a coalition consisting of 16 of the most influential and respected grassroots organizations in the United States and Puerto Rico, rates corporations annually against its four pillars of employment, procurement, philanthropy and governance.

Recognition of stakeholders

Throughout all parts of our company we work with NGOs, identify areas for improvement in our business, establish new goals and verify the data we compile on each of our initiatives to ensure that we are making good progress. They work with us because they are as eager as we are to see positive change in our business practices and supply chain. We thank them for their efforts and willingness to work with our company.
