We are committed to reducing our paper usage. Please help us by visiting walmartstores.com/investors to register for electronic delivery of Annual Shareholders' Meeting materials and other Company information.
While online, we also invite you to learn more about Wal-Mart's progress towards becoming a more sustainable company. In the second quarter we will publish an online version of our 2009 Global Sustainability Report. A condensed, executive summary highlighting our economic, environmental and social performance is available online now at walmartstores.com/sustainability.
In line with our commitment to sustainability, our Annual Report was created using environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing practices. The Report was printed using Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper and renewable wind energy. Additional sustainable practices included the recycling of residual materials and using reduced-VOC inks and coatings.
Savings baselines were developed using the national averages of similar coated papers and printing practices by EarthColor Printing.
