Kingfisher has published its latest Sustainability Report.

Kingfisher has published its latest Sustainability Report to update on how it is delivering against its commitment to help customers have sustainable homes. It also reports on the ambitious new carbon reduction target approved by the Science Based Targets initiative. Kingfisher is one of only 15 retailers worldwide to have done this and has already achieved a 15 per cent reduction in absolute emissions since 2016/17, the company says.

In the report it also states that 9 per cent of group sales are from products that help people have a healthy home or connect with nature, including innovative garden products with recycled and organic ingredients. Kingfisher's target is 20 per cent of sales by 2025."

Our aim is to make sustainability easy for our customers and have embed it throughout our business. We are doing that by integrating sustainability into the design of all of our new GoodHome ranges and, as our report shows, we are starting to see the results of this work," CEO Véronique Laury says.
