Products for a sustainable home

We believe that a good home is a sustainable home. Our sustainable home products help customers create the good homes they want. Homes that are well-insulated, energy efficient and affordable to run. Homes without harmful chemicals.

Homes that use natural materials and gardens that welcome birds and wildlife. Homes that use fewer but better resources and that are fitted out with quality, long-lasting products made in ways that are better for people and the planet.

Virtually every home improvement project has the potential to improve the sustainability of our customer’s homes. Already 28% of our sales come from sustainable home products and at B&Q we’ve reached 40%. This generated £3.1 billion for the business in 2016. Our long term aspiration is that every Kingfisher product will enable a more sustainable or net positive lifestyle.

Achieve 50% of Group sales from products that help create a more sustainable home with 10% group sales ‘best in class’ by 2020.

Our priorities

Our sustainable home products have a positive or much lower impact on people and the environment. We use our Sustainable Home Product Guidelines, developed with experts Bioregional, to improve performance across our ranges and to measure progress. Read our Sustainable Home Product Guidelines.

These focus on improving sustainability across six categories. We’ve included a product example for each.
