B&Q Becomes First UK Retailer to Buy 100% Responsibly Sourced Wood

After a campaign that spans over twenty years when B&Q became a founding partner of the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), the international group, has become the first major UK retailer to achieve its goal of only buying timber products from proven responsible sources.

Last year just over 90% of B&Q’s timber products were traceable to responsible sources and from February, the UK’s largest home improvement retailer can ensure that 100% of timber in its products, can be traced back to well managed sources. As the first major UK retailer to achieve this target, the pressure will now be on for others to follow suit.
