M&S on track with Plan A

July 2013

Stalwart of the British high street Marks & Spencer (M&S) says it is making good progress against its Plan A Report 180 sustainability commitments.

The company says that 139 of the 180 commitments have been achieved with a further 31 ‘on plan’ to be achieved.
The original, iconic Plan A commitments – being carbon neutral and sending no waste to landfill – have been maintained and improved as part of a business as usual approach with further reductions in carbon emissions (down by 23%) and waste (down by 28%).

Marc Bolland, ceo of M&S said: “We have moved closer to our vision of M&S as a sustainable international multi-channel retailer, but we know that we still have a long way to go to make this a reality.

“Through Plan A we will continue to push the business case for social and environmental responsibility, develop new alliances and learn from others.”
