Wal-Mart Goes Green
The nation’s largest retailer is embracing the environment. Wal-Mart announced on Monday that they are establishing goals, along with their suppliers, regarding the use of sustainable electronic products.
The initiative involves Wal-Mart, beginning next year, asking suppliers to complete a survey of how sustainable their products are, and also making the results of the survey available to customers.
The survey, called a “scorecard,” will evaluate the products on five criteria: energy efficiency, end-of-life solutions, durability, upgradeability, and packaging size.
