We will help make greener, healthier homes affordable.

Our targets

  • 60% of Group sales to be from our Sustainable Home Products (SHP) by 2025, including 70% of sales for our own exclusive brand products (OEB).

Our progress

  • In FY 21/22, £5.8bn of sales, representing 44.1% of Group sales (FY 20/21: 42.2%), were from ‘Sustainable Home Products’. This equates to a doubling of our penetration since the programme was established in FY 11/12.
  • We have now set up an ambitious new target for Sustainable Home Product sales to reach 60% of Group sales by FY 25/26 (previous target 50% by FY 20/21). 
  • We are also targeting 70% of OEB product sales to be from Sustainable Home Products by FY 25/26 (FY 21/22: 54.7%). 
  • We are leading the market in moving towards 100% peat-free compost, removed solvents from further paint lines, integrated recycled plastic into more furniture and tools, and increased the longevity of some hand tool ranges. 

Sustainable Home Products

Finding a sustainable product shouldn’t be more difficult or cost more, and today, more of our compost is peat free more of our paint is water based and more of our power tools are energy efficient. 

44.1% of Kingfisher Group sales came from products and services that help create a more sustainable home in 2021/22. 

We have updated our Sustainable Home Product guidelines and published a new online guidebook, which address how products are made, what materials are used, customer use and end of life. 

Reducing impacts from plastic

We want to reduce the amount of plastic used in our products and packaging and to ensure that any plastic we do use has a lower environmental footprint.

We aim to use at least 50 thousand tonnes of post-consumer recycled plastic per year by changing how we manufacture our products to make them more sustainable.

Sustainable packaging 

Packaging protects our products in store and in transit but can have a significant impact on the environment.

We have reviewed our packaging strategy for our own exclusive product brands during 2020/21 and introduced new targets;

  • At least 30% recycled content in plastic packaging by 2022.
  • Phase out non-recyclable plastic packaging such as PVC and expanded polystyrene by 2022.
  • Reduce plastic packaging by 25% (by weight) by 2025.
  • All paper and board used in packaging to be certified sustainably sourced by 2025.
