Marshalls has been in business for over a century. Our approach to sustainability is based on strong foundations, our Code of Conduct and The Marshalls Way of doing the right things, for the right reasons, in the right way. We always seek third party validation from internationally recognised standards.
Our sustainability strategy is to Create Better Futures for Everyone: Socially, Environmentally and Economically. We’ve been doing this for 20 years and we have the track record to prove it.
We’re committed to being a responsible business and are guided by the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). This is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative which covers 4 key areas: Human Rights, Labour, the Environment and Anti-Corruption, and we work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are appropriate for our business.
Our approach to sustainability spreads across our three key strategic priorities of: Respecting People
, Climate Action
and Made to Last
, so whether it’s reducing our carbon emissions by 50% since 2008, having the Fair Tax Mark since 2015 or being the first company to achieve BRE ELS 6002 for ethical labour sourcing and continuous accreditation for six years – to name but a few – we work by considering the long-term impact of every decision we make and recognise that we can create better spaces by putting people, communities and the environment first.
