Kingfisher plc is an international home improvement company operating nearly 1,200 stores in 10 countries in Europe. We employ 79,000 people and nearly six million customers shop in our stores every week. We serve over 1 million customers each day. Our main retail brands are B&Q, Castorama, Brico Dépôt and Screwfix. Kingfisher also operates the Koçtaş joint venture in Turkey. Kingfisher Net Positive, our corporate responsibility plan, commits us to go beyond sustainability, to no longer strive for neutrality but to seek to make a positive contribution to the world’s future.
