What gas the Plan A incorporated?
Plan A has somewhat incorporated the Environmental Management system of ISO 14001 embracing the ideals of over and above compliance with the regulations and legislation surrounding organisations. This is shown through the targets set by Plan A, involving the employees and customers in the objective of environmental consciousness; one of the commitments of the plan being to help three million customers develop personal sustainability goals vie the Plan A website by 2020 and encouraging customers to take action. Plan A also includes direct sustainability targets such as reducing packaging by 25%. The business partners involved with M&S such as food suppliers are also being held to a higher standard, which will now be required to implement gold/silver/bronze sustainability benchmarking system of standards, with the prospect of improving ethical and environmental performance. M& S is attempting to aid in the culture shift of being more environmentally aware of our impact through our actions and consumerist habits.
