We will be forest positive and help tackle climate change

With wood and paper used in around a quarter of all our products, we have been working to protect forests by sourcing our timber responsibly for nearly 30 years. We were one of the founding members of the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) and we are getting close to achieving our target of having 100% responsibly sourced wood and paper in all the products we sell.

We are now committing to be forest positive by 2025, which means that our overall effect on the world’s forests will be positive. Our ambitious Science Based Target, will help us cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our business, products and supply chains by 2025.

Our targets

  • Source 100% sustainable wood and paper for our products and catalogues by 2020/21
  • Become forest positive by 2025
  • Achieve our approved science-based carbon reduction target by 2025

Case study

Generating renewable energy

Our 12 net-zero energy stores at Screwfix generate more energy than they consume thanks to a solar PV installation, energy efficient design, an air source heat pump and LED lighting.
