New approach to plant protection
Last year already, HORNBACH removed plant protection products containing glyphosate from its product range. The company also delisted products with insecticides classified as endangering bees (B1) or involving neonicotinoids. With these measures, HORNBACH is supporting customers in keeping their gardens as natural as possible and helping to reduce any risks to human beings or the environment. HORNBACH is taking this approach in close dialog with suppliers and manufacturers and is working with these to investigate joint alternatives and include these in its product range.
Customers receive competent advice from our garden center employees as to how the new products work and how they should be applied. At the BHB sector association, HORNBACH will also be further promoting a dialog about garden products in the sector.
