The M&S offer covers clothing, home and food products and the company has an annual turnover of almost £10 billion.
The Marks and Spencer goal is to make sure key raw materials come from the most sustainable sources available. As Sustainable Development Manager Fiona leads their strategy to deliver this goal, which covers materials bought for internal use across construction, marketing and business operations as well as those used in our product offer.
She has worked in this area for almost ten years and has a history of success in improving the environmental and social footprint of retail product supply chains. Fiona previously worked for Sainsbury's, a major UK grocery retailer, where she introduced progressive sustainability policies for seafood, timber and palm oil sourcing.

Fiona Wheatley, Sainsbury's sustainability manager, said: "We are firmly committed to the use of certified sustainable palm oil and are currently looking for new products in which we can use it.
Fiona added: "We need to support the workers, farmers, families and communities that rely on palm oil while making sure that tropical forests are protected for everyone's future benefit.

"At M&S we are deeply concerned about the impact that soya production can have on the landscape and communities where it is grown" says Fiona Wheatley, Sustainable Development Manager at the UK retailer M&S. "That is why as part of Plan A, our 180-point sustainability plan, we have made a commitment to source all our soya from sources that do not contribute to deforestation by 2015".
Although this sounds simple, in reality this is a complex challenge for any retailer. Soya finds its way onto UK supermarkets shelves in a wide range of products. "Soya is a major ingredient in products like soya milk, tofu and soya sauce, but more often it only accounts for a tiny proportion of the product" says Fiona. "Soya is high in protein so is a common component of animal feed, this means it is indirectly used to produce chicken, pork and beef, as well as dairy products and eggs."
Faced with this complexity M&S are looking for practical, implementable solutions and this is where RTRS comes in. "We recognise we can't do this alone," Fiona says, "we need to work alongside expert partners to find the right solutions.
