2.5 years ago, Marks & Spencer rolled out a bold sustainability plan. No “motherhood” statements here – most of these are easily verified by a customer:

  • Operations in the UK and Republic of Ireland will be carbon neutral
  • Stop sending waste to landfill eg.,  Instead, reuse food scraps to create green energy
  • Selling only free-range poultry products
  • Converting key clothing ranges to 100% fair trade cotton
  • Increasing nutritionally balanced food to 50% of all foods sold

I’m so pleased to see large businesses step up to the plate like this.   And here’s some even better news – their initiatives have now become cost-positive.  If you want their 1/2 way point progress report, you can find it on their website.

Readers, Are any stores near you clearly holding themselves to sustainability standards?
