Marks & Spencer Expands Renewable Energy Mandate
Already committed to using renewable energy for 100 percent of its electricity needs in England and Wales, Marks & Spencer now is eyeing its operations in Scotland.
Only one Scottish Marks & Spencer store will not receive SmartestEnergy power. The Pollock store already had a deal with Npower, which is working with the retailer in the UK.
Marks & Spencer in 2008 said it planned to be carbon neutral by 2012.
In 2007, the retailer launched what it calls “Plan A,” or its business-wide eco-plan that calls for the company to:
– become carbon neutral,
– send no waste to landfills,
– extend sustainable sourcing,
– set new standards in ethical trading, and
– help customers and employees live a healthier lifestyle.
