The big announcement comes today that Wal-Mart will begin rating all of its products for environmental and social sustainability. The major initiative will focus initially on the top 1,500 suppliers but will eventually address the entire Wal-Mart vendor Community.
There is a good overview of the new program in the New York Times today, complete with a chart of the core issues suppliers will need to address for each of their SKUs.
Is this the second positive post about Wal-Mart in less than a month?
