BNY MELLON ENTERPRISE ESG 9 APPROACH Enterprise ESG Strategy BNY Mellon’s Enterprise ESG strategy is built on three pillars that correspond with what is currently most relevant to the company and our clients, employees, shareholders and the communities in which we operate. Culture and Purpose, Responsible Business and Global Citizenship. These pillars, and the dimensions within them, guide us in prioritizing how we integrate ESG considerations into our operations to address risks and opportunities across our business and are updated as necessary. Most recently, we have increased our focus on climate change within our Enterprise ESG strategy. We take both an inside-out approach, considering how our business impacts ESG issues and considerations, and outside-in, considering how ESG risks and opportunities impact our business. BNY Mellon is guided by global standards, frameworks and principles as we stay abreast of the rapidly evolving ESG landscape. They also guided the development of our 2025 Enterprise ESG Goals and key performance indicators, which are underpinned by mechanisms for monitoring our progress. Our strategy is implemented by an Enterprise ESG team and was guided in 2021 by a cross-functional Enterprise ESG Steering Council composed of senior leaders. Our strategy takes into account stakeholder input, global trends, business objectives and the results of enterprise-wide analyses to establish ESG priorities. Culture and Purpose Responsible Business Global Citizenship Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leadership & Development Employee Engagement & Wellbeing Community Impact Risk Management Governance ESG and Responsible Investment Client Solutions Technology Climate Change Environmental Sustainability Supply Chain Public Policy Human Rights Various guidelines, such as the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and rating and ranking frameworks, also influence our Enterprise ESG strategy. The Task Force on Climate- related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations inform our climate strategy, which is encompassed under our broader Enterprise ESG strategy.
