B&Q is pioneering the development of sustainable replacements to peat in all its products. Significant investment in the last 20 years has delivered success in partial peat replacement, and B&Q is now setting challenges for:
- 100% peat replacement from bagged media by 2020, and
- 100% peat replacement for professional horticulture by 2030.
2degrees is helping B&Q find fresh ideas, new relationships and different perspectives that can open the way to a total replacement of peat in their value chain. This is an open innovation challenge supported by 2degrees on behalf of B&Q, the UK’s market leader in DIY and gardening, and part of Kingfisher Plc.
