Wal-Mart is looking to end trips to the landfill by 2025.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has been increasingly adopting greener practices, and now the company is looking to end the waste it ships to landfills by 2025. The company says that it is currently "on track" to meet that goal.

Bloomberg Businessweek reported that the company said while it is moving ahead with some of its sustainability goals, others are falling short of projections. Environmental sustainability is one of the top five priorities for Wal-Mart, according to a statement from CEO Mike Duke last June. Bloomberg Businessweek has more information.

Wal-Mart has 31 stores and close to 10,000 employees in Oregon. New Wal-Mart stores in North Portland and Tigard will feature green and energy-efficient features. The Hayden Meadows store will feature a 40,600-square-foot ecoroof.
