BNY MELLON ENTERPRISE ESG 10 APPROACH We are meeting client and investor demand to elevate the scope and focus of our collaboration with clients, and our focus on Responsible Investment. We expect Responsible Investment to expand significantly as asset managers increasingly understand that it is no longer possible to successfully manage portfolios without a comprehensive analysis of the risks and opportunities associated with the transition to a more sustainable future. Additionally, we see the role of stewardship of capital as profoundly changing. Businesses without a sustainable model may cease to be attractive to customers, employees and ultimately investors. We believe that in the long run, investments will be expected to deliver a twin benefit of financial returns and a positive impact to society. Because our clients’ needs must respond to ever-evolving ESG demands, our solutions are multifaceted and fall into three categories: Responsible Investment: BNY Mellon offers a range of Responsible Investment options and advice for professional and personal investors to help them achieve their investment goals. Empowering Investors Through ESG Data and Analytics: Our breakthrough tools and analytics capabilities power investment processes and portfolio reviews for asset owners and asset managers, helping them to achieve their ESG goals. Enabling ESG Financing and Payments: We offer an end- to-end suite of ESG financing and payments solutions through our global market infrastructure, Issuer Services and Treasury Services.

SPOTLIGHT Innovations for Future Value Leveraging our leading position in the global capital markets, BNY Mellon convened clients and other stakeholders at our inaugural Future First Forum in May 2021. BNY Mellon leaders and industry experts discussed the innovations that are helping companies have a positive impact on people, communities and the planet while also driving long-term value. As BNY Mellon CEO Todd Gibbons noted, the pandemic has accelerated the need for widespread adoption of ESG principles and responsible investing. Over the course of the day, various perspectives pointed to a key theme: Participants saw an urgent need for clarity, consistency and transparency in how the financial industry addresses ESG considerations — whether via predictable policy, more transparent ESG data, or consistent frameworks for measuring impact. However, it will take time, innovation and initiative to accelerate the evolution of ESG to deliver positive global impact. Future First Insights Series As we work with our clients to help them achieve their ESG and responsible investment goals, we gain insights into key issues and share those through our Future First Insights thought leadership series. Authored by experts across the organization, these articles have addressed topics such as fixed income and responsible investing, helping investors understand climate risk, key ESG trends in retail investing, and addressing the challenges of ESG data.
