Wal-Mart’s Green Push in China

From the Financial Times:

Wal-Mart , the world’s largest retailer, is to convene a meeting of hundreds of its Chinese suppliers to set out goals for significant reductions in the environmental impact of its vast supply chain.

accounts for about 30 per cent of all foreign buying in China and just under 10 per cent of total US imports from the country, which were worth $321bn last year.

About 1,000 Chinese companies are expected to attend the event in October, marking a push by the retailer to globalise a drive on environmental sustainability that has hitherto largely been focused on its US operations.
