Climate and environment

As a global brand meeting many millions of customers around the world every day, we have a big climate footprint, and therefore a big responsibility to reduce it, from how we source raw materials and run our operations, through to the products and services we offer our customers.

Climate action

If we are to make the planet a safer and healthier place for generations to come, the world needs effective, organised and innovative action.

Drastically reducing our greenhouse gas emissions is key to becoming climate positive by 2030.

Circular business is good business

We’re on our way to becoming a circular business. As part of this transformation we’re developing products and services to help people maintain, repair and pass on their belongings.
