B&Q: marketing green technology products
During the first week of January, Hardtalk will be taking a closer look at Business. Today Jenny Scott meets Ian Cheshire, CEO of B&Q.
Ian Cheshire is a senior executive at Europe's largest home improvement retailer, B&Q.
The company started marketing wind turbines and solar panels commercially - in fact, it's a key part of its business strategy.
But is it really down to companies to promote the environment - or is it up to governments?

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 0430 2030 2330 and 0230.
