Mike is responsible for delivering Plan A 2025, Marks & Spencer’s ambitious, customer focused sustainability plan that will support 1,000 communities, help 10 million people live happier, healthier lives and convert M&S into a zero-waste business by 2025. 

He was part of the small team that in 2007 developed and delivered the original ground-breaking Plan A programme, a 100 point, five year plan to address a wide range of environmental and social issues.
 
His job is to work with the M&S leadership team to integrate sustainability into the heart of the business across its global retail channels and supply chains. This includes developing the business case; coaching/mentoring colleagues; changing business processes; customer and stakeholder engagement; and business model innovation.

In May 2011 Mike was named the Guardian’s inaugural Sustainable Business Innovator of the Year. He is Co-Chair of the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) Sustainability Steering Group, Chair of the World Environment Center, a Visiting Fellow at the Smith Centre for Enterprise and the Environment at Oxford University, a Senior Associate at the Cambridge Programme for Sustainable Leadership and sits on BiTC’s Environment Leadership Team. Prior to joining Marks & Spencer in 2000, he worked as an environment manager in the engineering sector and as an environmental consultant.  He is a chemistry graduate from Sheffield University.
