Wal-Mart Americas Extends Packaging Scorecard to Central and South America

Wal-Mart pushes for a more sustainable supply chain with the Packaging Scorecard and Sustainable Value Network (SVN)

Find green business solutions
Wal-Mart says its Packaging Scorecard, which currently rates U.S. suppliers on the sustainability of their packaging solutions, will take effect in Central and South America by the end of the year.

The scorecard, launched in 2008, is an evaluation system to help Wal-Mart buyers make more informed purchasing decisions by requiring suppliers to adhere to green product design and packaging standards. The scorecard is part of Wal-Mart's wider sustainability effort to create zero waste and stock greener products on store shelves.

Wal-Mart is also launching a Sustainable Value Network (SVN) to focus on reduced packaging in each market. The SVN will be made up leaders from Wal-Mart, supplier companies, academia, governments, and NGOs to explore challenges and develop solutions that benefit Wal-Mart’s business and its communities, the retailer says.

Wal-Mart Americas is the company's second largest business unit, after its U.S. business. It includes Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Central America, Brazil and Argentina, has more than 2,300 stores in ten markets, and employs more than 364,000 associates.
