Wal-Mart Goes Green?
As energy costs rise, a number of businesses are looking to gain a competitive edge by increasing their environmental efficiency. Most recently, Wal-Mart, in collaboration with the Environmental Defense Fund, is asking its suppliers to reduce their carbon footprints by cutting down on wasteful packaging, using alternative fuel in trucks, and improving store efficiency. Wal-Mart’s goal is to cut 20 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions by 2015.
