April 23, 2014
Walmart announced plans to purchase energy-efficient LED ceiling lighting fixtures for new supercenters in the United States, stores in Asia and Latin America, and Asda locations in the United Kingdom.

This is the most recent example of leadership from Walmart and GE to find and scale energy-efficient lighting solutions. "We have worked to find and scale energy-efficient LED lighting solutions that are cost effective and high quality, and now working with GE, we're paving the way to make this a mainstream solution for the retail industry," said Doug McMillon, president and CEO of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. "LEDs have become an integral part of our energy efficiency model for our stores and play a key role in achieving our overall sustainability goals.
