Marks & Spencer (M&S) today publishes its latest Plan A Report1 which shows progress against the programme’s 180 sustainability commitments, including its stretching 2015 targets.

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 per cent2) and waste (down by 28 per cent3).
