Marks & Spencer plans to be most sustainable retailer by 2015

1st March 2010

Sir Stuart Rose has announced Marks & Spencer's plans to become the most sustainable retailer by 2015.

"Since we launched our eco plan, Plan A, in 2007 we've reduced our environmental impact, developed new sustainable products and services, helped improve the lives of people in our local communities and saved around 50 million pounds by being more efficient" said Sir Stuart Rose.

"Our extended Plan A will reach further and move us faster - covering every part of our business and reaching out to forests, farms, factories, lorries, warehouses and into our customers' and employees' homes."

M&S's new commitments would include ensuring that at least 50 per cent of their 2.7 billion products across 36,000 product lines carry at least one sustainable or ethical quality – such as Fairtrade or Marine Stewardship Council certification – by 2015, and that all M&S products meet this criteria by 2020.

It will also seek to determine and agree a fair, living wage for workers in such markets as Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India, and provide training and education programs.
