Leading CEOs Share Best Sustainability Practices

CEOs from Wal-Mart, Fedex, PepsiCo, Whirlpool and Verizon are among the 97 executives from leading U.S. companies that share some of their best sustainability initiatives in the Business Roundtables’ annual report. These companies have committed to reducing emissions, increasing energy efficiency and developing more sustainable business practices.

The report, “Enhancing Our Commitment to a Sustainable Future 2010,” provides best practices and metrics from Business Roundtable member companies that represent nearly all sectors with $6 trillion in annual revenues.

As an example, Wal-Mart’s CEO says it is working with suppliers, partners and consumers to drive its sustainability program. The giant retailer has helped establish the Sustainability Consortium to drive metrics for measuring the environmental impacts of consumer products across their lifecycle. The retailer also helped lead the creation of a Sustainable Product Index to provide product information to consumers about the environmental impact of products they buy.

A few of Wal-Mart’s energy-efficiency goals include eliminating 20 million metric tons of GHG emissions from the life cycle of products it sells globally by 2015, and cutting supply chain emissions. One program with DVD suppliers has reduced their packaging and cut more than 28,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases.
