Private Industry’s Green Purchasing Impacts Suppliers, Consumers

Companies like Wal-Mart, FedEx, Home Depot and Office Depot are flexing their corporate environmental power, extending their green policies beyond their own operations to impact suppliers and consumers, according to Medill Reports.

While individual consumers’ purchasing habits have proven slow and difficult to change, private industry has enormous purchasing power and is easier to educate.

“There are a lot of people who buy trucks, but not 30,000 at a time,” Gwen Ruta, director of corporate partnerships at Environmental Defense, says in the article, referencing FedEx’s on-going initiative to develop and create a demand for commercial hybrid delivery trucks.

Wal-Mart also, for example, has been eager to spread its environmental knowledge as it works with its suppliers to trim packaging.
