Walmart Highlights Sustainability Index Progress

In front of an audience of associates, suppliers and nonprofit organizations at its Global Sustainability Milestone Meeting, Walmart highlighted on Sept. 12 its progress with the Sustainability Index, a measurement system used to track the environmental impact of products.

“We’ve reached an acceleration point where we are moving from measurement to results,” Walmart president and CEO Mike Duke says. “Using less energy, greener chemicals, fewer fertilizers and more recycled materials—all of this—is the right thing to do for the planet and it’s right for our customers and our business.”
