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.

Wal-Mart 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 Wal-Mart 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.
