Marks & Spencer has created an initiative called “Plan A”, the aim of which is to help limit the effects of global warning. Within the scope of this initiative, Yonga Mobilya has become the world’s second and Turkey’s first furniture factory to be awarded the “Eco-Factory Standard” certificate.
The Plan A project was launched by M&S in January 2007. Amongst its aims is the efficient management of energy resources such as lighting, heating, water & waste, whilst at the same time enhancing productivity. It is the role of the Eco-factory to bring about these aims through measures taken to maximise resources & minimise waste.
With the intention of inhibiting the potential effects of global warming & to enhance the working environment, M&S challenged all its suppliers, manufacturers, offices & stores to take up Plan A. Their mission statement was presented as “Let’s put Plan A in place for tomorrow, because there is no Plan B”. In other words, let’s preserve our current environment before our resources are exhausted, when it will be too late to replenish them.
