Marks and Spencer will open its most sustainable store next month in Sheffield, England. The U.K. retailer’s new building is built on a former brownfield site, using recovered materials in its structure and recycling all waste generated during its construction. The store’s energy operations—water supply, heat, and lighting—are also eco-friendly. The Sheffield store is the first of two sustainable learning shops M and S plans to open this year.

The Institute for Sustainable Development has announced the winners of the 2011 Green Plus North American Sustainable Enterprise Awards. Winners include The Taylor Companies, LubeStop, Laser Plus, Communication Matters, and The Scrap Exchange. The Awards are given to small- and mid-sizes businesses in the U.S. for excellence in triple bottom line sustainability, and are presented annually by GlaxoSmithKline.
