Marks & Spencer Expands Renewable Energy Mandate

Marks Spencer storefrontAlready 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.

The retailer has signed a four-year deal with SmartestEnergy to purchase enough renewable energy to run all its Scottish stores and offices. The deal takes effect in April of 2010, reports MRW.

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.
