BENTONVILLE, Ark., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- We applaud the President and
his administration for their commitment to renewable energy and conservation.
Investing in renewable energy and energy conservation are good for business,
good for communities and good for the environment. When we use less energy,
that's less energy we have to buy, and that means less waste and more savings
for our customers. Over the last few years we've made meaningful progress
towards our goal to be supplied by 100 percent renewable energy. Walmart now
has over 300 renewable energy projects in operation or under development
around the world, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named us
the number one user of onsite renewable energy. As we continue on our journey
we will continue to leverage our scale in purchasing energy so we can drive
down technology costs and make renewable power more affordable for everyone.

- Mike Duke, Walmart President and CEO
