Wal-Mart is expected to introduce an index that would determine the social and environmental impact of all the products it sells today during a Web cast of its Sustainability Milestone Meeting.
The index could help buyers decide what items to put in stores; consumers referring to the index could see how brands compare in the sustainability department. The move has lots of implications, including potentially higher costs for manufacturers. There could also be more competition among brands for shelf space as manufacturers vie for higher rankings.
