The 2008 Gold Medal Award Presentation & Celebration will take place on Friday, May 9, 2008 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

The World Environment Center Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development was established in 1985 to recognize preeminent industry leadership initiatives and contributions to worldwide environmental excellence and sustainable development.

The World Environment Center's (WEC) Twenty-Fourth Annual Gold Medal for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development has been awarded to Marks & Spencer for linking sustainability extensively with its supply chain, operations, and customers.

Marks & Spencer's Signature Contribution, known as Plan A, was cited by the independent international Gold Medal Jury as an extraordinary and successful model of sustainability practice. Plan A is a 100-point five year sustainable development program, covering all aspects of Marks & Spencer's business. Through it, the UK retailer aims to become carbon neutral and send no waste to landfill from its own operations; extend sustainable sourcing; set new standards in ethical trading and help its customers and employees live a healthier lifestyle. The jury citation is available here.
