Kingfisher plc hosted a ‘Teach-in’ event for investors and analysts, in London, on Tuesday 5 July 2022.
The event focused on two of our ‘Powered by Kingfisher’ pillars: E-commerce & Technology and Responsible Business, with presentations by senior leaders and management from these areas of the business.

We have been working on Responsible Business issues for over three decades, helping to pioneer new approaches, from the responsible sourcing of wood and paper, to innovative charitable partnerships and creating products for our customers that help them afford greener, healthier homes. On 5 July 2022, we are delighted to have published our 2021/22 Responsible Business Report which is available for download via the link below.
The Teach-in event is Carbon Neutral Plus and PAS 2060 certified. PAS 2060 is the internationally recognised standard for carbon neutrality. It sets out requirements for the quantification, reduction and offsetting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for organisations, products and events. The event was certified as Carbon Neutral Plus through offsetting a greater amount of carbon than the event generated.
To offset the emissions generated by our Teach-in event we invested in the Nicaforest High Impact Reforestation Programme in Nicaragua. This programme combines reforestation on degraded land for timber production, capture of carbon dioxide and protection of natural forests. The programme contributes to the creation of a sustainable value-chain by working closely with local landowners in a Shared Benefit Scheme. The programme plants teak, a tropical hardwood tree species and other valuable species for future timber production and added-value wood production as well as other measures aimed at increasing resilience in local municipalities.
The project protects the remaining patches of native vegetation and creates additional conservation areas on the banks of rivers and other watersheds. The forests offer a natural habitat for native animals and plants, protect and enrich the soil, save and filter water and contributes to the mitigation of the greenhouse effect.
