  1. 1. Plan A - Doing the right thing Beulah Keane Sustainable Construction Project Manager Marks and Spencer
  2. 2. What have we already achieved? Through Plan A we have: Made a real difference to the issues we tackle Engaged customers Motivated our people Stimulated innovation Sti l t d i ti Opened up new markets Mitigated risk Delivered financial return
  3. 3. A future store that: Is zero embodied carbon in construction Is made from 100% recycled material Is 100% recyclable when y refurbished or no longer needed Has H a net positive t iti biodiversity impact Is resilient to climate change by being net water positive Brings new benefits to the communities we serve
  4. 4. Scope & Boundary
  5. 5. Embodied Carbon
  6. 6. Operational Carbon
  7. 7. Total Carbon
  8. 8. “Right now, the urgent issue is water, not global warming, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer longer” Peter Brabeck-Letmathe – Chairman o Nestlé ete abec et at e C a a of est é
  9. 9. • Each Briton uses about 150 litres per day, however the embedded water consumption per h h b dd d i person is over 3400 litres every day • 1.2 billion litres of water are flushed needlessly away every day in the UK.UK • London is drier than Istanbul, South East England , g has less water than the Sudan or Syria.
  10. 10. Scope & Boundary
  11. 11. Embodied water in Raw Materials for a notional shell specification. p
  12. 12. Life Cycle Water Consumption
  13. 13. Total LifeCycle Water
  14. 14. Carbon & water embodied in ater materials and in building units
  15. 15. Available Water- London specific
  16. 16. What we still need to do… • Continue the search for an industry accepted methodology • Engage our supply chain, and address possible mitigation routes g • Further investigate the connection between water and carbon • Create a Water Strategy for our construction process • S l up water measurement i stores Scale in • Extend the scope to include fit out materials
  17. 17. Further information • Includes: – Our Plan A commitments 2010-2015 2010 2015 – Sustainable Construction Paper – Sustainable Construction Manual – 2009 How We Do Business Report
