3 Mirova overview by numbers Capitalizing on 30 years of experience in Responsible Investing within Natixis AM Own brand launched in % subsidiary of Natixis Asset Management since multi-disciplinary experts 5.2 billion in assets under management 5 capabilities around Responsible Investing Equities Fixed Income Infrastructure Impact Investing Voting & Engagement 3,1 billion 1,3 billion 569 million 116 million 42,9 billion 3

4 Responsible Investment Integrating ESG The philosophy at Mirova is not to exclude companies automatically. Rather to analyse issuers and sectors, and where long term challenges are found, then to appreciate issuers who seek solutions to these challenges. Issuers are considered in the light of sustainable opportunities and risk. They are additionally rated committed, positive, neutral, negative and risk. The last two are not acceptable. There are also ratings for the 3 pillars: Environmental, Social and Governance. Exclusion There are no sectors automatically excluded, however they are currently no investments in Oil, Tobacco, Defence and Gambling. This is because our ESG analysts have found no company in those sectors providing adequate solutions to the challenges they face. The situation with Alcohol is more granular - ethical issues are considered on a case-by-case basis Positive investment Not only do we believe in companies who try to provide solutions to long term challenges We also support sectors which try to do this also For example, Green Bonds try to help with the transition to low carbon economies 4

5 Main sustainability issues (ESG) Environmental - Pollution - Depletion of resources - Reduction in biodiversity - Climate change Social - Respect for human rights - Health - Development Corporate Governance - Long term view based on value creation - Protection of all stakeholders interests 5

6 Integrating ESG Opportunities OUTPUTS Thematic and financial opinion per company Exposure to long term positive trends ESG rating Governance risks Bond structure Transparency, etc Life cycle risk 6

7 Investment Process A value approach, benchmark aware but not benchmark constrained that combines ESG and financial profile Fundamental analysis Duration management Portfolio construction primarily based on security selection Yield curve positioning Macro sector analysis 7
