Walmart Brings Mexican, Central American Suppliers Up-To-Date On Eco-Goals

October 7, 2010: 01:15 AM EST

Walmart’s recent two-day forum for Mexican and Central American suppliers outlined the giant retailer’s plans for reducing its environmental impact in those regions. The retailer’s long-term commitment to support eco-friendly best practices includes three long-term global objectives: to create zero waste, to use 100 percent renewable energy, and to sell products that sustain the environment. In Mexico, for example, the company’s first wind energy facility provides energy to 348 Walmart Mexico stores. Walmart hopes that, by the end of 2015, it will: limit greenhouse gas emissions growth to half the rate of sales floor expansion, reduce energy consumption by 13 percent (over 2009 levels), recycle or reuse 80 percent of waste, reuse 60 percent of treated water, and reduce all water consumption by 30 percent.
