Wal-Mart Stores Inc’s new leadership (WMT.N) plans to expand efforts to reduce waste, use renewable energy and push suppliers to clean up their act, the company’s incoming chief executive officer said on Monday. “We want to accelerate our efforts in sustainability. We want to broaden our efforts,” said Mike Duke, who will become Wal-Mart’s CEO on Feb. 1 when Lee Scott retires from that position.

This is not optional,” Duke said. “It’s not something of the past. This is all about the future.” Image source: walmartstores.com. > Continue.
