My other car's a Bentley, admits "green" M & S chief

Stuart Rose the chief executive of Marks & Spencer, who is spearheading a £200m plan to reinvent M&S as one of the UK's greenest companies, has been driving two gas-guzzling Bentleys on his days away from the office - The Guardian tells us.

I'm reading Christine Arena's new book "The High Purpose Company". In it she quotes Paul Hawken,  "Real corporate responsibility involves systemic change. It requires a business to carefully evaluate every aspect of itself, and very few want to do that".

Marks and Spencers high profile campaign states "there is no plan B".    Some one should tell Mr Rose.
