Electronic communications/electronic proxy voting

Kingfisher plc actively encourages all shareholders to register now for the electronic communications service through the eTree™ campaign run by Kingfisher’s Registrars’ agents, Pepper SRM, in conjunction with the Woodland Trust. When you register for electronic communications, a tree will be planted on your behalf in a UK area selected for reforestation. This service enables you to save paper, contribute to a greener countryside and reduce harmful carbon dioxide emissions which impact climate change. Kingfisher’s shareholders have contributed to the planting of almost an acre of woodland through registering for electronic communications in the last two years. More information about the programme can be obtained by visiting www.etreeuk.com.
CREST electronic proxy voting
