M&S will bring LED lighting to every M&S food hall over the next two years as part of its ongoing programme which has given sustainability attributes to 63% of products within the first six months. 

In a half-year update, the retailer detailed the LED rollout, which will see M&S install the energy efficient lighting in 100 Simply Food stores and a further 300 food halls will receive LEDs for their refrigeration units.  

LED lighting is key to helping M&S achieve its 35% energy reduction target by 2015 and 50% by 2020. The use of LED bulbs has already been trialled in 12 stores and has shown an reduction in energy use of around 20%. 

The use of LED lighting was first used at the M&S eco store in Sheffield in 2011 which was one of the first shops in the UK to use the technology.
