Ariane Grazian joined Walmart four years ago as the sustainability manager for general merchandise. Since, she’s managed Walmart’s factory efficiency programs in China and supported design for Walmart’s sustainable apparel strategy, including the stand up of a global textile mill sustainability program. Currently, she is the global program lead for Project Gigaton, Walmart’s commitment to eliminate 1 billion metric tons – a gigaton - of greenhouse gases from the global value chain by 2030. For Ariane, the most exciting part about her role is seeing the private sector lead from the front, and the role technology can play, to catalyze engagement and combat climate change.
Prior to joining Walmart, Ariane served as a client lead for the Strategy and Operations practice at Deloitte Consulting in Washington, D.C., specializing in program redesign and process optimization. She was born and raised in Chicago, and earned a degree in international business from the George Washington University.
