Press release:
Kingfisher wins award for Best CSR Report at the GREEN AWARDS™

2 December 2010

 

Kingfisher has won the award for Best Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report at the GREEN AWARDS™ 2010. The global award scheme recognises and rewards creativity in sustainability. The winners were announced at the annual awards ceremony on 2 December.

As one of the world's leading home improvement retailers, Kingfisher is in a unique position to help people create sustainable affordable homes of the future. A key focus of Kingfisher’s Future Homes CR strategy is to provide eco products, information and advice to enable customers to reduce the environmental impact of their homes. For example, B&Q UK has launched its first 'eco shops' within stores at New Malden and Sutton and is introducing City & Guilds qualified eco advisers. In 2009/10, Kingfisher increased eco product sales to more than £1 billion for the first time (representing ten per cent of total sales).

Kingfisher is committed to leading by example and is therefore working to embed sustainability into all aspects of its own operations. For example, Kingfisher’s total CO2 equivalent emissions (from energy and transport) decreased by 8% in 2009/10 and store waste disposed has been cut by 10%.

A CR Summary Report (PDF 2.08Mb) is available or the full report is online at www.kingfisher.com/cr.
