Forest Friendly

Over 1.6 billion people worldwide depend on the forests for their livelihood

B&Q's Forest Friendly programme aims to protect workers' welfare and rights – and encourages the employment of local people.

Each of the independent assessment schemes that B&Q works with for the Forest Friendly programme has ethical standards that are checked when verifying that wood has been responsibly sourced.

Forests are home to 300 million people*.

Respecting the rights of indigenous people is an important requirement for B&Qs Forest Friendly programme.

The needs and interests of forest communities and tribes are taken into account when determining whether an independent assessment scheme is appropriate for Forest Friendly.
