LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jennifer Woofter, a sustainability consultant who specializes in helping companies create financial value from environmental and social responsibility, will speak in an i2live conference call on Oct. 6 addressing how Walmart is using sustainability to drive supplier performance. This event is sponsored by Industry Intelligence as part of its i2live web conference series. Register for free at http://www.industryintel.com/i2live.

During her presentation, Ms. Woofter will explore commonly asked questions, including:

  • What are Walmart's sustainability expectations for suppliers?
  • What specific environmental and social elements must suppliers have in place to score well?
  • What are the easiest ways to improve your score?
  • What does the future hold for the Walmart Supplier Sustainability Scorecard?

Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the Q&A session.

Ms. Woofter, the founder and president of Strategic Sustainability Consulting, will lead participants through a practical analysis of their organization's sustainability performance. Participants will identify ways to strategically integrate environmental and social initiatives into their operations and decision-making process. By the end of this event, participants will be able to assess how their company would score on the Walmart scorecard, as well as identify at least three ways to improve their sustainability performance.

Understanding the Walmart sustainability scorecard is one of two packaging-related online events offered by i2live in connection with Ms. Woofter and Strategic Sustainability Consulting.  A second event on November 3 will focus on managing and reporting sustainability metrics.
