Board Diversity Statement

The Board is committed to ensuring that the directors of Kingfisher plc demonstrate a broad balance of skills, experience, independence, knowledge and diversity (including gender diversity). We believe that balanced and diverse boards are effective boards. We now have 40% female representation on our Board, which is in excess of the proposed aims to be achieved by 2015. As an organisation, we are committed to maximising the benefits of our diverse workforce to deliver real and sustainable benefits for the Group.
