M&S Announces Chemical Commitments

Fashion retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S), United Kingdom, joining environmental watchdog Greenpeace's Detox campaign to stop chemical pollution of the Earth's waters, has committed to eliminate by 2020 toxic chemical releases from its supply chains and all products it sells.

Among other measures, M&S has committed to strengthen its ban of alkylphenol compounds; eliminate perfluorocarbon usage within its supply chain by July 2016; conduct a public disclosure feasibility trial related to dyehouse chemical discharges in China; and eliminate all chemicals found to be hazardous as new evidence comes to light. It also has published its Environmental & Chemical Policy and its restricted substances list.
