Can you believe that headline ? or is it just a noble experiment at one store.
Headline and article from the Louisville Courier-Journal's Business section:
Wal-Mart changing for the better ?Wal-Mart's Lee Scott is not the first chief executive to advocate sustainability, a term for the corporate ethos of doing business in a way that benefits the environment. Industrial giant General Electric Co., for example, last year launched a program called "Ecomagination" to bring green technologies like wind power to market.
Some of the new items will be seafood caught in the wild. Wal-Mart last month announced a plan to have all its wild-caught fish certified by the Marine Stewardship Council as caught in a sustainable way.
Sustainability experts say what makes this program interesting is that Wal-Mart will work with its suppliers to get more fisheries around the globe certified by the council, instead of just buying up the existing stock of certified fish.
