  • Climate pledges spread, raising questions about credibility

Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and seven other U.S. companies joined a growing list of businesses vowing to use only electricity produced from renewable sources, a sign of the corporate world’s increasing willingness to help curb global warming.
