Kingfisher builds towards new ambitious sustainability targets


Kingfisher has laid out new sustainability targets after making “significant progress” with its responsible business strategy this year.

The DIY giant has brought forward its target to achieve net-zero emissions by 10 years, with the aim to reach net-zero for its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2040.

Kingfisher has reduced its carbon emissions across group operations by 24.5% against a 2016/2017 baseline. Scope 1 refers to a company’s emissions that it can reduce directly, while Scope 2 applies to indirect emissions such as electricity, heat or steam.
