Katherine Neebe

Director of Sustainability

Katherine joined Walmart’s sustainability team in June 2013 and leads Walmart’s external stakeholder relationships, focused on cultivating high-impact partnerships that deliver strategic value to Walmart’s business and advance social/environmental issues. In addition, she determines Walmart’s response for the business, environmental and social impacts of pressing or emerging sustainability issues.

Previous to Walmart, Katherine spent six years at WWF managing one of the world’s largest corporate-NGO partnerships, a $97MM sustainability-driven initiative with The Coca-Cola Company focused on water. Work addressed river basin conservation, water and energy efficiency, sustainable agriculture and packaging. In 2011, the effort expanded to include a cause-marketing platform directed towards polar bear conservation. Work is active in 49 countries.

Over the past 16 years, Katherine has worked with a wide range of corporate, government and nonprofit organizations. Weaving together her intensive business experience and commitment to social and environmental responsibility, she brings a practical ability to ground sustainability into actionable terms. Katherine received her MBA from The Darden School at UVa in 2004 and has a BA in English from Colorado College.
