Walmart has been a mainstay in Walmart for years, and the retailer has been one of the top spenders on #CokeForAll, an effort to reach and reach a global audience for the company’s signature drink.
But the company has been under fire from critics for what some see as corporate excesses in its corporate social responsibility efforts.
Last year, Walmart announced it would be donating 100% of its profits from the Coca-Cola beverage to charity and in the process, it became the first company to donate $1 billion to charity.
Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said the campaign was designed to “get kids engaged” and “make a difference.”
But Walmart has also been at the forefront of corporate social issues, such as the high cost of child labor, which Walmart said it would make a public commitment to eliminate.
In 2014, Walmart CEO Mike Duke and Walmart’s board of directors decided to cut the company a $20 million check to support the Children’s Fund.
In the midst of the #CocholocA campaign, Walmart has made a major push to address the health and wellness of its workers.
On Monday, the company announced a new initiative to invest in a new medical care network that will include Walmart hospitals.
The initiative will help to increase the number of health care providers in the region by 50% and will also improve access to care for those with chronic illnesses and disabilities.
