Good for the wallet,
good for the planet

From energy efficient light bulbs to water efficient taps, we’re making it easier for customers to create a good home that’s better for their wallet and the planet.

Take our lighting ranges. We’re switching over to LED — a technology that is long lasting and uses a fraction of the energy of a traditional bulb. Already, 91% of the bulbs we sell are LED - LED product sales were worth over £200 million to our business in 2017/18.

Making water efficiency the easy choice

Saving water is a priority too. Our new kitchen taps, for example, come fitted with a regulator limiting water flow to 8 litres per minute compared with up to 20 litres in our previous ranges.

We know that saving resources at home isn’t always as easy as changing a light bulb. So we’re helping customers tackle more complicated projects. Our energy advisory service in France, for example, has now been launched in 11 stores, helping customers plan their project, book an installer and access subsidies.
