SPOTLIGHT

1. BUSINESS:

64 companies follow Wal-Mart's effort to reduce suppliers' emissions

When Wal-Mart Stores Inc. took a magnifying glass to its business operations, the multinational retail corporation found numerous ways to save energy, cut costs and reduce its carbon footprint.

2. CITIES:
