For its supply chain, Wal-Mart partnered with the Carbon Disclosure Project to find out ways for its suppliers to better manage their energy efficiency.

NOTE The Carbon Disclosure Project is a not-for-profit organization that works with organizations to determine the greenhouse gas emissions of major corporations.

The partnership will allow Wal-Mart to measure the amount of energy used throughout its supply chain. It will then use the information to look at a group of suppliers to examine ways to make procurement, manufacturing, and distribution more energy efficient.

Wal-Mart started its plan with a pilot group of seven of the most commonly purchased products:

• Toothpaste

• Vacuum cleaners

Suppliers are encouraged to monitor their greenhouse gas emissions, thus helping Wal-Mart reduce its total carbon footprint.
