B&Q pledges action on climate change at the Prince of Wales's May Day summit

Published: 3 May 2007
B&Q has joined forces with major UK businesses to pledge its commitment to tackling climate change.
The home improvement retailer is a supporter of the May Day summit – a national event uniting more than 1,200 businesses who work towards a low carbon economy.

B&Q is now in the process of providing sustainable products in its stores.

Ian Cheshire, ceo of B&Q said: "By improving choice, reducing price and providing strong point of sale information, we have seen sales of sustainable products increase significantly in the last three years."

Alongside new products, B&Q is working with non-governmental organisations such as Waterwise to educate consumers.

The Prince of Wales's May Day summit is organised by the Carbon Trust and Business in the Community.
