M&S signs renewable energy contract

Marks & Spencer has signed a deal with Npower to provide it with renewable electricity from April 2009.

M&S said that the contract would provide it with enough renewable electricity to power its stores and offices in England and Wales.

Npower will supply M&S with electricity from a range of renewable sources including wind and hydro farms. M&S said it was a major step towards its Plan A goal to become carbon neutral.

Richard Gillies, Director of Plan A at Marks & Spencer said: “Securing this contract with Npower is a major achievement for M&S. Not only does it significantly move us towards our goal of using 100% renewable electricity across our stores and offices, it also strengthens our market-leading commitment to encouraging small third-party generators, including some of our own suppliers, to develop renewable electricity. This is a viable secondary business opportunity for many farmers – who can be confident that M&S will purchase, via Npower, any renewable electricity they generate.”
