Topshop and M&S to battle for ethical award

Topshop and Marks & Spencer will battle it out to win the top prize in the fashion category of the RSPCA Good Business Award in October.

Topshop and M&S have been shortlisted for the final of the RSPCA Good Business Awards, together with ethical retailers Romp, Izzy Lane and Natural Collection.

The finalists were chosen for their commitment and innovative approach towards animal welfare.

Wayne Hemingway, one of the fashion category judges, said: "We were highly impressed by the calibre of entries this year. Our finalists demonstrate that with dedication and passion, it is possible for fashion retailers to establish profitable business models that position animal welfare at the core. It was truly inspiring to see that welfare friendly can equal fashionable and profitable. However, there is still much progress to be made across the industry as a whole, and we now want to urge more high street retailers to follow suit and establish sustainable welfare policies that are so vital to an ethical business agenda."
