Bri­tish fash­ion re­tailer Marks & Spencer and Shang­haiTex will jointly or­ga­nize a ‘Plan A 2025’ Busi­ness Fo­rum at the 2017 edi­tion of the show. Shang­haiTex is the lead­ing in­ter­na­tional trade fair for the tex­tile in­dus­try. The agenda is to pro­mote ‘in­dus­try sus­tain­abil­ity’. The event will be held on Novem­ber 28 this year at Shang­hai New In­ter­na­tional Expo Cen­tre in China.

M&S’ Plan A 2025 is the eco, eth­i­cal strat­egy which it in­tro­duced to tackle the fresh set of 21st-cen­tury chal­lenges. The Plan A fo­cuses on the core value of the com­pany to pro­tect the planet by sourc­ing re­spon­si­bly, re­duc­ing waste, uti­liz­ing re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als, sup­port­ing fair trade and help­ing the com­mu­ni­ties.

M&S has al­ready made its UK op­er­a­tions 28 per cent more en­ergy-ef­fi­cient us­ing ‘green’ elec­tric­ity and is also ac­tively en­cour­ag­ing its sup­pli­ers to be a part of its car­bon-neu­tral pro­ject. At the Fo­rum, ex­perts from dif­fer­ent fields will share the most cut­ting-edge in­for­ma­tion and ex­change opin­ions on sus­tain­able in­dus­try de­vel­op­ments as well.
