Wal-Mart has partnered with the Carbon Disclosure Project to measure the amount of energy used to create products--such as vacuum cleaners--throughout its supply chain, including the procurement, manufacturing, and distribution process.

With this measurement tool, Wal-Mart will kick off a pilot with a group of suppliers to explore new ways to make the entire process more energy-efficient.

The pilot will focus on seven product categories to determine their environmental impact and examine ways to drive energy efficiency. The seven product categories--DVDs, toothpaste, soap, milk, beer, vacuum cleaners, and soda--were chosen for their common usage.
