1 DJSI Sustainability Assessment Economic Dimension 1.1 Corporate Governance Corporate governance systems ensure that a company is managed in the interests of shareholders (including minority shareholders). On the one hand this includes checks and balances that enable the Board of Directors to have appropriate control and oversight responsibilities. Empirical evidence suggests that over a period of 5 years, the difference of return on equity between well-governed and badly-governed companies can be as much as 56% (source: GMI 2007). On the other hand management incentives have to be set in such way that management interests are aligned with shareholder s interests. RobecoSAM s questions focus on board structure, composition of the board and relating committees, board effectiveness and measures to ensure the alignment with the longterm interest of shareholders, which includes transparency and structure of executive remuneration as well as share ownership requirements Board Structure Please indicate in the following table the number of executive and non-executive directors on the board of directors/supervisory board of your company. Please find additional clarification on one-tier and two-tier systems in the information button. Board Type Please select whether your company has a one or two-tier board ONE-TIER SYSTEM. For companies with board of directors. Executive directors 1 Non-executive directors (excl. independent directors) Independent directors 10 Total board size 11 Number of members 0 TWO-TIER SYSTEM. For companies with supervisory board. SUPERVISORY BOARD Non-executive directors (excl. independent directors) Independent directors Employee representatives (if not applicable, please leave the field empty) Number of members MANAGEMENT BOARD/ EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT Senior executives 2 of 144, Copyright RobecoSAM AG,

2 Board Independence Statement Number of members TOTAL SIZE OF BOTH BOARDS Please indicate if your company has an independence statement for the board of directors in place. Please provide a supporting public reference : Yes, we have a publically available independence statement and it includes the following: An explicit definition of what determines that a board member is independent. Please specify: The Board is responsible for determining whether or not each director is independent within the meaning of such term set forth in National Instrument A target share of independent directors on the board. Please specify: We do not have a public independence statement for the board of directors For the May 12, 2015 Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders, the Board of Directors of the Corporation set the number of directors to be elected at the meeting at 11. The shareholders elected as directors are the 11 listed in the Notice of 2015 Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders and Information Circular, p Encana's Board of Directors has appointed five committees: Audit; Corporate Responsibility, Environment, Health and Safety; Human Resources and Compensation; Nominating and Corporate Governance; and Reserves. The Reserves Committee is particular to the oil and gas industry. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee gives consideration to the appropriate size of the Board. Encana believes that the current size and composition of the Board is sufficient to provide a diversity of expertise necessary to organize all five committees, yet small enough to facilitate efficient meetings and decision making. Mr. Suttles, Encana's President & CEO, is the only board member that is a member of the Corporation's management and is considered to be non-independent due to his position as President and CEO of the Corporation.

9 to the performance period and longest vesting period questions herein include a performance stock option grant made to our CEO upon hire in 2013, which is eligible to vest in four years (2017) if certain Board-approved performance thresholds are achieved. Approximately 90% of our CEO's 2014 annual compensation is based on annual bonus eligibility, determined by the Board of Directors based on Encana's performance relative to the metrics and targets (approved by the Board) contained in our annual Company Scorecard and our share price. For purposes of our bonus program, operational performance categories include: (i) Operating Performance; (ii) Portfolio Transition; and (iii) Balance Sheet strength, which are comprised of measures including annual production, capital efficiency, operating costs, exit production volumes, environmental and regulatory performance, annual safety performance and financial performance. Approximately 64% of our CEO's 2014 compensation was comprised of LTI awards, for which 85% is subject to a full deferral of vesting for three years. Compensation opportunity under these LTI grants is determined by Encana's TSR performance (over three years) relative to a peer group of companies and Board approved thresholds, as well as the absolute performance of our share price Transparency of Executive Compensation Does your company communicate the remuneration/compensation of your board of directors/supervisory board members and other highest paid directors / senior executives (e.g. CEO) externally?

Companies need to implement internal control processes to comply with existing regulations and be proactive in developing the control mechanism. RobecoSAM's questions focus on some structural and key elements of the risk management system, such as group-wide uniformity, risk definition, risk visualization, and risk response strategies. Additionally, we perform a real-time check to assess the system works with our internal MSA (Media and Stakeholder Analysis). 13 of 144, Copyright RobecoSAM AG,

17 1.3 Codes of Conduct/Compliance/Corruption&Bribery Economic crime is consistently harmful to a company's intangible assets (e.g. negative impact on the company's reputation, on staff morale and on business relationships). Internal controls appear to be inefficient when looking at how economic crimes are actually discovered, suggesting that internal systems are often co-opted, circumvented or overridden. Companies active in countries with weak anti-corruption laws are exposed to additional reputational and legal risks. Evidence of corrupt practices can result in exclusion from contracts financed by institutions that blacklist suppliers of bribes (e.g. World Bank's list of debarred firms), potentially impacting future earnings as well as higher risk premiums for debt or equity. The key focus of the criterion is on the Codes of Conduct, their implementation and the transparent reporting on breaches Codes of Conduct: Focus Please indicate for which areas corporate codes of conduct have been defined at a group level (including subsidiaries). Please attach supporting documents. Corruption and bribery Discrimination Confidentiality of information Antitrust/anticompetitive practices Money-laundering and/or insider trading/dealing Environment, health and safety Whistleblowing No group-wide code of conduct Encana regularly reviews its corporate governance model and creates and amends policies and practices to ensure that Encana s expectation for compliant and ethical behaviour is firmly supported by a strong ethics and compliance infrastructure.

The Business Code of Conduct establishes Encana's commitment to conducting business ethically and legally and addresses topics such as compliance with laws and regulations, conflict of interest, anti-fraud, disclosure, 18 of 144, Copyright RobecoSAM AG,

22 1.4 Supply Chain Management In an increasingly globalized world, when a company outsources its production, services or business processes, it also outsources corporate responsibilities and corporate risks. This means that companies need to find new strategies to manage the associated risks and opportunities that differ from the traditional risk and opportunity management of when the company has its production or services in-house. In addition the company is confronted with the need to minimize costs and time of delivery to satisfy the demand of their suppliers and increase profitability without negatively impacting the quality of the product or at high environmental or social costs. Investors increasingly see the importance of supply chain risk management and the negative consequences if it is not managed effectively. This criterion aims to identify companies that have lower supply chain risk profiles, either through the characteristics of the supply chain or through appropriate management of existing risks.
