Kingfisher wins two awards for pioneering Net Positive projects
Kingfisher has been recognised in the Guardian Sustainable Business Awards 2014 for two programmes: our impact from adopting a Net Positive approach to our business and our impact on channelling waste back into the business through closed loop principles.
Our Net Positive programme has gained wider traction outside our business with the name being coined for a wider restorative business movement. By rethinking our approach to waste and channelling back into the business we’ve developed new products and revenue streams for the business whilst cutting raw material use.
