The first phase of such a project would be to do a product
audit of your product range. Firstly, this will allow us to
identify the main sustainability and useability issues which

We have worked with the Kingfisher Group at a strategic level
to develop the two sets of guidelines you see here. They play
an important role in Kingfisher's plan for Corporate Social
Responsibility as they help buyers make purchasing decisions
and they also help suppliers and designers make products line-up
with what Kingfisher want. Our product audit was specifically
in the garden power tools category, but the guidelines cover
the whole product range.

design guidelines in more detail.
