A big well done to Marks and Spencer for today announcing that they intend to become a carbon neutral store.
The news within this piece of news though that really impessed me was their determination to do this, as much as possible, via reducing their carbon footprint by saving energy, making use of renewable energy and through re-thinking the way they do business. They have not simply decided to carbon offset, so often used by businesses going green. Marks and Spencer have said that carbon offsetting will only be used as a last resort when everyavailable alternative has been tried.
Now Marks and Spencer have set a standard, let's hope other stores will follow.
