Our strategic progress

Powered by Kingfisher

Lead the industry in Responsible Business practices

We are committed to leading our industry in responsible business practices, seeking to maximise our positive impact on the lives of our customers, colleagues, communities and the planet.
 
This commitment has been at the forefront of our response throughout the pandemic. Building on our strong Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) credentials, our ‘Powered by Kingfisher’ strategy sets out four priority areas for Responsible Business, where Kingfisher can apply its experience, scale and influence to play our part in the big challenges facing us today – from becoming a more inclusive company that better represents the customers and communities we serve, through to enabling our customers and communities to have better, more sustainable homes and helping to protect our planet for the future.
