View Full Report

Kingfisher plc, Europe’s largest home improvement retailer, has committed to go beyond zero impact to become Net Positive in four areas - timber, energy, innovation and communities – by 2050.

Its latest report shows that in the first few months since the launch of Net Positive it has already made progress against its ambitious targets.

Highlights from the report include:

  • 89% of timber products responsibly sourced (from proven well-managed or recycled sources).
  • Forest projects launched in Spain and the UK that will restore undermanaged forests and woodlands, boost biodiversity and open up new sustainable sources of timber.
  • 5 TWh of energy saved for customers over two years through the sale of energy-saving products.
  • 10% reduction in Kingfisher’s own energy intensity and an absolute reduction in CO2 emissions of 3% since 2010/11, in a period of business growth.
  • Pilot projects launched to test new business models and help catalyse the transition to a closed-loop society.
  • 20% of retail sales from products with eco credentials.
  • Community skills-sharing websites in France and the UK that support local regeneration.
