Walmart recognizes Briggs & Stratton for emission reduction

Walmart recently recognized Briggs & Stratton Corporation for its leading contributions to its greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal, namely that of its work on the E Series engine.

"We are incredibly proud to be recognized by one of the largest retailers in the world," said Joe Wright, SVP and president, Engines Group, Briggs & Stratton. "Our E Series engines meet EPA emissions standards, which are 35% stricter than previous standards. They also use less material than previous models, thereby reducing the carbon footprint needed to build these engines in our Murray, Kentucky plant."

The E Series was designed specifically to reduce Briggs & Stratton's carbon footprint, replacing the 450/500/550 Series as the company's premier engine.

Walmart is aiming to eliminate 20 million metric tons of greenhouse gas from its global supply chain by the end of 2015, an effort that it began in 2010.
