M&S to hold Sustainability Forum at ShanghaiTex '17
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.
