Marks & Spencer 'considers wind power'

Marks & Spencer 'considers wind power'
High street retailer Marks & Spencer is looking to encourage its farmers to install wind turbines on their land, it has emerged.

According to financial website thisismoney.co.uk, the firm is aiming to become carbon-neutral by 2012 and is currently exploring how wind power can be factored into achieving this goal.

"There has already been some interest as a result of our project in Aberdeenshire, but we would welcome hearing from any farmers who would like to look at this model with us," a spokeswoman from the retailer stated.

Its Scottish-based stores all operate on green energy tariff, as does its west London-based headquarters and all of its Simply Food outlets.

In addition to proposed farmland wind turbines, Marks & Spencer has put forward a planning application to install six small turbines on its flagship store near Bristol.

Earlier this month, the retailer pledged to cut down on the number of plastic bags used at its food stores by issuing a 5p charge for each carrier bag used after May 6th.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18511901-ADNFCR
