Wal-Mart trims annual report for environment


BENTONVILLE, Ark. In an effort to be a more sustainable company, Wal-Mart announced that it has gone as far as to skim down its annual report and to print it on lighter, recycled paper. Shareholders are directed to Wal-Mart's company Web site for more information and to vote their proxy ballots.

"We are very proud of Wal-Mart's sustainability efforts and we're glad that an increasing number of our shareholders worldwide have joined us in that effort by receiving our annual report online and by filing their proxy ballots electronically," said Charles Holley, Wal-Mart Stores evp of finance and treasurer. "By developing an interactive annual report online, we can print fewer, smaller reports, save tons of paper -- and reduce the cost and energy used to mail ballots."
