Achievements to Date

100% of coffee served at its cafes is from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. (Source: Rainforest Alliance).
From 2013-2014, 96% of the wood-based materials used by Marks & Spencer were Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, recycled or from sources that protect forests and communities, up from 88% the previous year. Marks & Spencer has set a new, longer target date for this commitment to allow for more time to resolve the “tail end” of their sourcing. (Source: Marks and Spencer)
