Walmart Expands Efforts To Improve Sustainability Of Its Supply Chain Worldwide

October 25, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Walmart announced several initiatives aimed at making the retailer's supply chain in the United States, China, and around the world more sustainable.  Building on the company's sustainability goals set at the China Sustainability Summit in 2008, the initiatives include Walmart's pledge that by 2017, the company will buy 70 percent of the goods it sells in US stores from suppliers that use the Sustainability Index to evaluate and share the sustainability of their products. Also, in 2013, the retailer will use the index to guide the design of its private-brand products in the US. The Walmart Foundation will also donate $2 million to The Sustainability Consortium and help the organization in launching TSC in China.
