NEW YORK (AP) — Wal-Mart is launching an online shop on its site that aims to help customers find products that are good for the environment from manufacturers that have been leaders in sustainability.
The portal, which features more than 12,000 products in 80 different product categories like toys and printers, comes six years after the world’s largest retailer launched its own index that rates suppliers’ impact on the environment. That index was developed in collaboration with The Sustainability Consortium, an independent third-party organization of academic-based scientists.
