We have been prioritising Responsible Business for over three decades – from collaborating across sectors to pioneer approaches for the responsible sourcing of wood and paper, to creating more sustainable products for our customers, and establishing innovative charitable partnerships. Our Responsible Business priorities are underpinned by our commitment to our Fundamentals – the many issues and impacts we need to measure and manage to ensure we continue to operate responsibly across our business.
Our Responsible Business strategy focuses on the four priorities where we can best use our experience, scale and influence to bring about positive change in our business for our customers, supply chain, society and beyond.
Our priorities are underpinned by our commitment to our Responsible Business Fundamentals – the many issues and impacts we need to measure and manage to ensure we operate responsibly throughout our business value chain. We have clear policies in each of these areas, from health and safety, to responsible sourcing, cyber security and data protection, and ethical conduct, to ensure we take a consistent best practice approach across Kingfisher and our banners.
We align with a number of external disclosure initiatives including CDP, the Workforce Disclosure Initiative (WDI), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD).
We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals that provide a framework for governments, business and civil society to work together to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change by 2030.
We have reviewed our progress and strategy against the UN Sustainable Development Goals and have identified the priority goals for our business.
