BNY MELLON ENTERPRISE ESG 117 APPENDIX FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS We have included in this report statements that may constitute “forward-looking statements.” Forward- looking statements are not historical facts or statements of current conditions, but instead represent only our beliefs regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside our control. These statements are not guarantees of future results or performance and involve certain known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict and are often beyond our control. These statements relate to, among other things, our goals, targets, aspirations, strategy, plans, intentions and objectives, and actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, any of these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause our outcomes and results to differ from the forward-looking statements include global socio-demographic and economic trends, energy prices, technological innovations, climate-related conditions and weather events, our ability to gather and verify data regarding environmental impacts, our ability to successfully implement various initiatives throughout the company under expected timeframes, the compliance of various third parties with our policies and procedures, legislative and regulatory changes, and other unforeseen events or conditions. In addition, important factors that generally affect our business and operations can be found under “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, and in subsequent reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Certain disclosures included in this report are being provided in connection with our application of guidelines and recommendations of the Global Reporting Initiative, the UN Global Compact, the Task Force on Climate- related Financial Disclosures and others. Our approach to the disclosures included in this report differs from our approach to the disclosures we include in our mandatory regulatory reports, including our filings with the SEC. While certain matters discussed in this report may be significant, any significance should not be read as necessarily rising to the level of materiality used for the purposes of complying with the U.S. federal securities laws and regulations, even if we use the word “material” or “materiality” in this report. This report is intended to provide information from a different perspective and in more detail than that required to be included in other regulatory reports, including our filings with the SEC. All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which such statements are made, and BNY Mellon undertakes no obligation to update any statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such forward-looking statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
