Wal-Mart enforces Chinese green rules

No cheating in Wal-Mart supply chain is emphasized at the company's China summit this week in Beijing, attended by the retail giant's more than 1,000 leading suppliers as well as Chinese government officials and non-government organizations.

Wal-Mart president and CEO Lee Scott said:
"I firmly believe that a company that cheats on overtime and on the age of its labor, that dumps its scraps and its chemicals in our rivers, that does not pay its taxes or honor its contracts -- will ultimately cheat on the quality of its products."

And cheating on the quality of products is the same as cheating on customers. We will not tolerate that at Wal-Mart."
