Wal-Mart Seeks Sustainable Business Solutions for Its Textile Supply Chain

Wal-Mart held a two-day meeting on issues and opportunities related to the sustainable production and use of textiles.

The meeting brings together specialists in every area of the textile supply chain from both inside and outside the company, as well as environmental consultants and representatives of non-profit organizations. Topics of discussion include standards, metrics, and certifications, key trends, definitions of sustainability in the textile supply chain, and the environmental, social, and economic impact of different business choices. Wal-Mart says its objective is "to gather information and to gain insight into the perspectives of the numerous constituents involved in the debate on natural fibers and other key textile issues," according to a company statement. The company says it does not expect to make any immediate business decisions following the meeting.
