The ESR recognizes a company carrying out actions that consistently show a strong performance in social, environmental and corporate governance issues.

For Walmart’s corporate communications director, Antonio Ocaranza, corporate responsibility is part of their culture and business strategy, and their actions are always directed toward doing the right thing for their customers, business and society.
