Electronic shareholder communications

Reckitt Benckiser Group plc supports the eTree initiative, an environmental program designed to promote electronic shareholder communications (eComms). If you elect to receive shareholder communications by eComms, RB will donate £1, for every email registered, towards the Woodland Trust's Tree for All campaign. The aim of the campaign is to combine the planting of 12 million trees with the education of our children to understand the importance of working in harmony with the environment.

An election to receive shareholder communications electronically will:

  • result in annual cost savings to the Company since no paper documentation will need to be produced and posted;
  • allow for more effective communications with shareholders; and
  • support RB’s corporate responsibility profile

If you are interested in joining this initiative, please click on the link below to register for eComms. You will need your Shareholder Reference Number (a 10 digit number prefixed with the letter C) which can be found on your share certificate or dividend tax voucher.
