The Oxfam and M&S relationship is about understanding each other’s businesses, which in turn identifies common ground. This case study will share two activities – one supply chain and the other consumer focused – which developed out of a history of constructive dialogue between the two organisations. The activities demonstrate how joint objectives can be achieved by developing a closed loop model, starting and ending with some of the world’s poorest people in mind.
