Chief opens M&S ecostore

Have your say

Marks & Spencer chief executive Marc Bolland is opening the retailer’s greenest ever store at Ecclesall Road in Sheffield today.

The store is the first of a number of ‘Sustainable Learning’ stores, designed to further increase the group’s understanding of sustainable construction techniques and processes.

Eco-friendly features include using heat produced by refrigerators to keep the building warm, and energy efficient LED lighting augmented by “sun pipes,” bringing natural light to the interior.
