Who is Covered by Our Code

Our Code applies to all associates of Walmart and its subsidiaries. It also applies to Walmart’s and its subsidiaries’ board members when they are acting in their capacity as our directors. Our Code is translated into multiple languages so that our associates can easily understand it. Walmart may modify the content of our Code of Conduct as we change and face new issues. We expect our suppliers, vendors, service providers, and other business partners to act with integrity and honor our values. Specific requirements for these third parties are included in the Standards for Suppliers and/or in our contracts with them.


Associates who violate our Code may be subject to discipline, up to and including termination.

In rare cases, it might be appropriate to waive a part of our Code. To request a waiver, contact Ethics & Compliance in advance of the activity for which you want the waiver. When executive officers or directors seek waivers, only Walmart’s Board of Directors (or a committee of the Board) may grant them, and they will be publicly disclosed when required by law.
