Kingfisher builds towards new ambitious sustainability targets

B&Q

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.
