View important information about our forward-looking statements here. Introduction Our focus on corporate citizenship and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues has long been a differentiator for DaVita. For more than 16 years, our Trilogy of Care— Caring for Our Patients, Caring for Each Other, and Caring for Our World—has been at the heart of who we are and what we do. As the COVID-19 pandemic continued in 2021, this trilogy was more important than ever. Caring for Our Patients DaVita is a comprehensive kidney care provider focused on transforming care delivery to improve quality of life for patients globally. We are one of the largest providers of kidney care services in the U.S. and have been a leader in clinical quality and innovation for more than 20 years. We work to help increase equitable access to care for patients at every stage and setting along their kidney health journey—from helping slow the progression of kidney disease to supporting transplantation, and from acute hospital care to dialysis at home. Caring for Each Other Our teammates are at the heart of the care for our patients. Therefore, supporting our teammates and delivering what matters most to them is critical. We use a holistic approach to invest in our teammates across six key pillars: financial health; physical and emotional health; job flexibility; growth; connection and belonging; and purpose. Caring for Our World We are committed to doing our part to support our local communities and to minimize our impact on our changing climate. Our science-based targets and 100% renewable energy goal are some of the ways we are bringing that commitment to life. Additionally, we want to give back to the communities where our teammates and patients live and work. Through our strategic giving focus areas, we have supported health equity initiatives through the American Diabetes Association as well as the National Kidney Foundation’s THE BIG ASK: THE BIG GIVE® program to promote living kidney transplantation.

About This Report As part of our commitment to corporate citizenship, in 2021, we announced a set of goals for 2025, organized around our key focus areas and inspired by our Trilogy of Care. We are continuing to build upon this ambitious foundation, to further our impact and increase our transparency in reporting our progress. This report will cover our overall approach to ESG, governance, strategy, metrics and targets for how we measure our progress, including the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) metrics and the Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework.

Our ESG Governance and Strategy We strive to be a community first and a company second, which is underscored by our deep rooted commitment to our ESG practices. Our ESG focus areas include how we care for our patients; how we support our teammates to grow and thrive in a workplace where everyone feels like they belong; and how we engage with our local communities and promote environmental stewardship. 4 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE ESG Governance The governance of ESG starts with the Board, and the responsibility permeates throughout the organization. The Nominating and Governance Committee of DaVita’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) oversees DaVita’s activities, policies and programs related to corporate environmental and social responsibility: • Our management ESG Steering Committee regularly reports to the Nominating and Governance Committee and gives the full Board an ESG update on no less than an annual basis • The management ESG Steering Committee provides guidance on strategy and disclosures for our ESG initiatives • The committee is comprised of leaders from across the business who represent various perspectives and stakeholders, and its objective is to align ESG strategy across the Company ESG Strategy Based on feedback from key stakeholders and the SASB recommended metrics for health care service providers, we have identified our key ESG issues and focus areas: Patient Care Teammate Engagement Environmental Stewardship Healthy Communities Leading with Integrity & Accountability • Quality of Care • Patient Experience • Patient Education • Health Equity • Diversity & Belonging • Teammate Development • The DaVita Way • Carbon Emissions Reduction • Water & Waste Reduction • Compliance, Ethics & Governance • Data Privacy • Supply Chain • Charitable Giving • Volunteerism OUR ESG AND GOVERNANCE STRATEGY

2025 ESG Goals In 2021, we announced our goals in each of our five ESG focus areas for 2025, many of which are aspirational. The goals represent our ongoing commitment to meaningfully advancing corporate citizenship initiatives. In the process of setting these goals, we worked with key stakeholders across the company to determine objective metrics, leveraging external reporting frameworks, such as SASB, and science-based goals when possible. While we recognize that it may be difficult to achieve some of these aspirational goals during the timeframe, we believe there is value in striving for these goals. Please see below for a full update on our progress towards our ambitious goals.

6 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE 2021 ESG Initiatives: Patient Care Patient Care In 2021 and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, DaVita continued its focus on delivering safe, high-quality care in an equitable way to all patients. We support patients across their entire kidney care journey, including: prevention, transition, treatment and transplant. Quality of Care DaVita remained a clinical leader in the government’s two key performance programs, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Five-Star Quality Rating System and the Quality Incentive Program (QIP) in 2021. To learn more about the ways DaVita provides quality care, visit DaVita Better Care today. Patient Experience In addition to providing high-quality care, it is critical that patients feel cared about. One way to measure patient experience is through the Net Promoter Score (NPS), which measures a patient’s likelihood to recommend DaVita to others. Our most recent NPS of 57 for our dialysis patients demonstrates the care and support our patients feel and how that translates to advocacy. We strive to maintain an NPS above 50, which indicates excellence across industries.¹ Integrated Kidney Care Through DaVita® Integrated Kidney Care (DaVita IKC), patients receive comprehensive care that goes beyond kidney care to cover comorbidities and overall health, from the early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) to end stage kidney disease (ESKD). Learn more about DaVita IKC . As of December 31, 2021, DaVita IKC provided integrated care and disease management services to approximately 16,000 patients in risk-based integrated care arrangements and to an additional 7,000 patients in other integrated care arrangements. 96% of facilities scored 3, 4, or 5 stars in CMS’s Five Star Quality Rating System.* Home Dialysis Dialyzing at home rather than in a dialysis clinic can be the optimal modality for many patients. In 2021, approximately 15% of our patients dialyzed at home. DaVita expanded its home dialysis care program to include new technologies to enhance patient and physician experience, which is another important step forward to enable more patients to choose to treat their kidney failure at home and stay at home for as long as clinically possible. 2 Read more about the benefits of home dialysis . ~15% of DaVita patients dialyzed at home * According to October 2020 data (for 2019 year) from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Five-Star Quality Rating System. 1. https://www.qualtrics.com/experience-management/customer/good-net-promoter-score/ 2. Statistics are as of December 31, 2021, and are for U.S.-based patients only. Modality selections and decisions related to a patient’s care are always made by the attending nephrologist and patient, and provided pursuant to a physician’s order. 2021 HIGHLIGHTS

Patient Education Kidney Smart is a no-cost, comprehensive kidney education program offered online, over the phone, or in-person and open to anyone in the community. The program offers kidney health education and lifestyle recommendations to help at-risk individuals understand aspects of kidney disease and strategies to prevent progression of their kidney disease. Learn more . DaVita educated more than 30,000 new people in 2021 as part of our five-year goal to achieve 100,000 Kidney Smart participants. We strive to support equity at every step of the kidney care journey. CKD disproportionately affects communities of color and the disparity continues as patients advance through ESKD, consistent across the kidney care community. We are proud that our patients largely achieve equitable outcomes across key clinical metrics, including hospitalizations and infections, among others. Our goal is to reduce or eliminate health disparities, including within Home and Transplant. Learn more . 7 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE Health Equity Kidney Transplantation DaVita and the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) launched an innovative, yearlong pilot aimed at improving health equity in kidney transplantation with a newly-developed program within NKF’s THE BIG ASK: THE BIG GIVE ® platform. DaVita’s transplant education and support programs include Transplant Smart, a multi-media kidney transplant-specific education program about the transplant process and what to expect. DaVita also acquired MedSleuth, a transplant software company, to help improve the transplant experience. DaVita patients received a kidney transplant in 2021 7,500+ Closed the COVID-19 vaccination gap for our Hispanic patients and improved the vaccination gap for our Black patients from 30% to 5% lower than vaccination rates for our White patients from March 2021 to January 2022. Our efforts focused on eliminating access barriers and a dedicated campaign addressing higher hesitancy for underrepresented groups. Launched a local partnership pilot to deliver culturally tailored education at a community level. Acquired MedSleuth. Its software helps to remove barriers to access, provides strong care coordination and supports patients through the transplant journey. 2021 HIGHLIGHTS

8 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE Diversity & Belonging (“D&B”) To realize our vision of “a diverse Village where everyone feels like they belong,” we take a collaborative, leader- led and teammate-driven approach to building our D&B program. Four pillars comprise our strategy: Diversity, Belonging, Economic Mobility and Health Equity. Below is how we bring these to life. For more information, visit www.davitadiversityreport.com . Diversity We strive to have strong representation of women and people of color in our Village by meeting or exceeding EEO-1 benchmarks for all levels. As of Dec. 31, 2021: 2021 ESG Initiatives: Teammate Engagement Teammate Engagement To achieve our mission of being the Employer of Choice, we strive to: Meet our teammates’ basic needs to provide for themselves and their families. This means offering competitive compensation and benefits while also supporting teammates’ physical and mental well-being and making work “work” for teammates. Live our purpose: to give life.

10 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE Teammate Development Many people join our Village as one of our more than 19,000 patient care technicians (PCTs) or 16,000 registered nurses (RNs). To help ensure that teammates have the support needed to succeed in their current roles, and grow their careers, we have invested in an end-to-end career development platform. It offers programs and initiatives that provide financial, academic and social support to our clinical and operations teammates to help achieve their higher education and leadership goals. Beginning with programs that cover certification fees for PCTs; to coaching and tuition programs that help guide PCTs to becoming RNs; to programs that help develop high potential nurses, clinical coordinators and clinic nurse managers into operational managers; and ultimately to programs that prepare and coach operational managers for potential regional operations roles; our goal is to make resources available to teammates at each step of a possible career path. Clinical Ladders In 2021, we launched our Clinical Ladders program, which sets clear competencies and milestones for teammates to achieve in each of the five clinical levels. This visibility empowers teammates to be in the driver’s seat of their career and growth, providing the structure and transparency to grow their careers in our Village. Currently, one-third of our Village has fully adopted Clinical Ladders. We plan to bring Clinical Ladders to every PCT, licensed vocational nurse (LVN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), RN and Clinical Coordinator (CC) in the Village in 2022. Career Development We also provide opportunities for teammates to grow their skills by enrolling in one of our many career development programs. These programs are designed to grow PCTs to RNs, RNs to operational managers, and operational managers to operational directors. For example, since the program launched, we have had more than 900 teammates enrolled in our Bridge to Your Dreams program, which supports high-performing teammates in their dream to pursue an associate’s degree in nursing and become a DaVita nurse. Additionally, in 2021, DaVita invested $4.4M in tuition reimbursement, impacting approximately 1,800 teammates. ~64% of Facility Administrators and managers have been promoted internally, as of December 31, 2021 2021 HIGHLIGHTS

Personal and Professional Development Through DaVita University (DVU), we offer personal and professional development programs for a variety of roles and teammate levels. All teammates have access to our proprietary suite of educational resources to explore various topics to further their learning and education. More than 12,500 teammates participated in personal and professional development in 2021, totaling 19,000+ DVU course completions. The DaVita Way The DaVita Way is the foundation of our culture. It means that we care for each other with the same intensity with which we care for our patients. We believe that by caring for each other we can improve health care, grow leaders and make a real difference in the communities we serve. One of the ways we measure teammates’ experience with our culture is through our teammate engagement survey. In 2021, our teammate engagement score was 84%, which is consistent with our 2025 goal. Health and Wellness In 2021, we doubled the number of We Are Well Award recipients. As part of this program, we invite our teammates to share their physical, emotional and financial wellbeing stories. Project Reignite provides wellness activities for teammates relating to mindfulness, movement, nutrition and sleep. Teammates have free access to the Headspace application for digital meditation and mindfulness. Support for our Teammates and Their Families Throughout the pandemic, provided a variety of support programs for teammates, including emergency financial support, PTO policy updates and mental well- being resources. Bright Horizons Care Advantage Family Care programs include backup childcare, access to college coaching, and support for parents of children with special needs. DaVita Village Network (DVN) provides teammates financial assistance during times of hardship. Additional Support: milk- delivery service for nursing moms, and a financial gift or additional paid leave for eligible parents upon the birth or adoption of a child. 11 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE 2021 HIGHLIGHTS

12 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE 2021 ESG Initiatives: Environmental Stewardship Commitment to 100% Renewable Energy We reached a big milestone in 2021 when the Prospero II solar farm became operational, helping us achieve our 100% renewable energy goal for our U.S. locations. With this virtual power purchase agreement, our agreements to purchase energy from wind and solar farms now create as much clean energy annually as the amount of electricity we use in our U.S. operations. Energy Reduction DaVita continued its progress on reducing emissions by completing 1100+ energy efficiency projects in 2021. These projects included LED lighting retrofits and installing Building Management Systems (BMS) and HVAC and water heater upgrades. Energy Efficiency Project Highlights Water Reduction DaVita maintained its focus on water reductions throughout our operations, including through a water optimization and Top Water Users targeted reduction program. DaVita saved more than 85 million gallons of water in 2021.¹ centers with LED lighting to date, with 630 centers completed in 2021 centers with BMS to date, with 143 centers completed in 2021 2,200+ 2,300+ 2021 HIGHLIGHTS 1. Calculated based on gallons per treatment savings from clinics with water efficiency projects implemented

Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) We have prepared an inaugural TCFD report to disclose our actions around climate governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets in-line with the recommendations of the TCFD. TCFD Executive Summary DaVita recognizes our responsibility to be an active contributor to global climate efforts, including deep decarbonization and investments in the resiliency of our facilities and communities. We have prepared this TCFD report as part of a company-wide initiative to proactively assess, identify and manage climate-related risks and identify and pursue opportunities to improve operational resiliency. Governance The Nominating and Governance Committee of DaVita’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) is responsible for oversight of ESG, including climate-related activities. The Board receives reports at least annually on the company’s ESG strategy activities. In addition, the Audit Committee of the Board reviews significant risk areas for DaVita, which may include climate-related risks to the extent material. Within management, the ESG Steering Committee oversees all climate-related activities underway within the Energy and Sustainability Department. DaVita’s Business Continuity (BC), Emergency Management (EM), and Facilities teams are responsible for the management of physical risks. See our SASB and TCFD data below for more information on our sustainability initiatives and data. 13 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE Strategy DaVita believes it is well positioned to manage through the energy transition necessary to meet global climate goals given that it has adopted approved science-based targets for its Scope 1, 2, and 3 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. Our emissions targets are in line with global commitments that are intended to help the world limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius or less. Through a third party analysis, DaVita has identified important risks for management based on a portfolio risk assessment of our more than 2,800 U.S. and 300 international outpatient dialysis centers (as of 12/31/21) and key supply chain partners: Short Term (0-2 years) Flooding from extreme rain, coastal floods, and hurricanes; wildfires and air quality issues Time Horizon Most Important Physical Risks for Active Management Acute: Extreme weather (e.g., wildfires) Chronic: Sea level rise/coastal flooding and heat waves Medium (2-10) and Long Term (10-30 years) Management DaVita has been proactively managing and measuring GHG emissions for several years, and has management strategies and plans in place to help achieve our emissions reduction targets. Similarly, several years ago EM identified climate-related factors as emerging risks for management to monitor. EM works proactively on issues in the context of climate change, including mitigation of the impact of future emergencies such as water shortages, power outages, and high water events that may be increased in severity by climate change. DaVita uses findings of its climate-related risk assessments to help support active management of climate-related risks. For example, flooding from extreme rain, coastal floods, and hurricanes represents a short-term potential risk. Accordingly we plan to explore flood resilient design options for treatment centers, as well as lower cost interventions such as backflow prevention devices, to determine the effectiveness of these and other strategies. Proactive and comprehensive flood risk management can help reduce missed treatments during severe weather events and help to support continued care for our patients. Metrics and Targets DaVita tracks several climate-related metrics and targets, including approved science-based targets. More detail is available in the metrics and targets section of this report. 1 https://sciencebasedtargets.org/how-it-works 2021 HIGHLIGHTS

DaVita remained a clinical leader in the government’s two key performance programs, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Five-Star Quality Rating System and the Quality Incentive Program (QIP) in 2021. Five-Star Quality Rating System: The Five-Star Quality Rating System is a mechanism created by CMS to give consumers access to clinical quality information and to help them make informed and educated decisions about where to receive dialysis care. These ratings are made up of two scores: the Quality of Patient Care Star Rating and the Patient Experience Rating. Quality of Patient Care Star Rating: DaVita remains a clinical leader in quality of patient care.* To learn more about the CMS’ Five-Star Quality Rating System, refer to these frequently asked questions . Patient Experience Rating: The Patient Experience Rating reflects patient experience scores from the CMS In-Center Hemodialysis Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey. The optional survey is given twice a year to eligible dialysis patients (patients who received in-center hemodialysis at the center for at least 3 consecutive months, are at least 18 years old, and are not living in a skilled nursing facility or other long-term facility such as a jail or prison). For a center to receive a Patient Experience Rating, at least 30 patients had to complete the survey over the course of the year. Only about half of the centers across the industry met the eligibility requirements to receive this rating. 96% of DaVita facilities scored 3, 4 or 5 stars in CMS’s Five Star Quality Rating System.* Quality Incentive Program: QIP is a pay-for-performance rating system also developed by CMS to encourage dialysis centers to meet or exceed certain performance standards. Centers that do not meet these standards are penalized between 0.5 percent and 2 percent on their Medicare reimbursement. DaVita centers outperform the industry in the top clinical performance tier. We are an industry leader in the Quality Incentive Program (QIP), which promotes high quality services in outpatient dialysis facilities treating patients with ESRD.

While DaVita teammates do not make insurance recommendations to patients, DaVita social workers and insurance educators do provide patients with information, tools and resources to enable patients to conduct their own research and make well-informed insurance decisions. 21 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE ESG DATA TABLES—SASB METRICS AND TCFD REPORT

Providing care for uninsured patients: Each year, thousands of individuals without health insurance receive dialysis care from DaVita. As a DaVita patient, these individuals receive in-depth information from DaVita social workers and insurance educators regarding all potentially available insurance options. Over 75% of these patients are able to subsequently secure health insurance coverage during their course of treatment at DaVita. Providing charity/indigent care programs: Using consistent and well-established patient financial criteria, DaVita provides low-cost or no-cost care to patients who are unable to afford copays, coinsurance, or other insurance cost-sharing elements. Through DaVita’s “Patient Financial Evaluation” program, DaVita establishes affordable and consistent payment plans for patients. Helping connect patients with government and non-profit resources: DaVita social workers and insurance educators help educate and connect patients with local, state, and national programs aimed at providing insurance education and support. These include organizations such as State Health Insurance Assistance Programs, the Social Security Administration, state Medicaid programs, insurance marketplaces, and charitable organizations. By doing so, patients are empowered to perform their own research into insurance plans and support programs that patients determine best meet their individual needs and preferences. Educating patients on available insurance options: Depending on individual patient circumstances, patients may gain or lose eligibility for certain forms of insurance while receiving care at DaVita. For instance, most patients who do not already have Medicare become eligible for Medicare as dialysis patients. At times, patients may lose access to Medicaid or employment-based commercial insurance coverage. DaVita social workers and insurance educators follow consistent processes to ensure patients who gain or lose access to insurance during their course of treatment at DaVita receive timely information on available insurance options and actions to take if patients choose to enroll in new insurance.

TCFD Report About This Report DaVita has prepared this report to disclose its actions around climate governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets in line with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). This inaugural TCFD report includes results of DaVita’s geographic risk screening exercise against physical and transition risks to our global outpatient dialysis centers and key suppliers. DaVita has approved science-based targets to ensure that our GHG emissions reductions targets are in line with global commitments to help the world’s efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius or less. Governance Disclose the organization’s governance around climate-related risks and opportunities. A. Describe the Board’s oversight of climate-related risks and opportunities. DaVita is committed to elevating the health and quality of life of patients around the world. Many of DaVita’s services are essential, including dialysis, which is a life-sustaining treatment for patients experiencing End Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD). As such, DaVita works to mitigate risks that may cause a disruption or delay in this treatment. The Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board reviews and oversees DaVita’s activities, policies and programs related to environmental sustainability and governance matters, including climate-related risks and opportunities. In addition, the Audit Committee of the Board reviews significant risk areas for DaVita, which may include climate- related risks to the extent material. The management Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Steering Committee regularly reports to the Nominating and Governance Committee and gives the full Board an ESG update at least annually. Management also reports on enterprise risks to the Audit Committee on a quarterly basis, and to the full Board annually. Management periodically updates the Audit Committee on the process for ESG-related public reporting, including reporting controls. B. Describe management’s role in assessing and managing climate-related risks and opportunities. The management ESG Steering Committee provides guidance on strategies and disclosures for our ESG initiatives. The committee is comprised of leaders across the business to represent various perspectives and stakeholders, and aligns strategies across the company. DaVita’s energy and sustainability department oversees DaVita’s environmental goals and the strategies and initiatives implemented in conjunction with many other teams, including Facilities, Biomedical, Construction and Design and others. This includes management of climate-related risks and opportunities. We have established two key performance indicators for 2025 that are verified science- based targets, in addition to a goal to be 100% powered by renewable energy, including through the use of virtual power purchase agreements. Progress against these targets, along with full accounting of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, is reported within our ESG report and to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) annually. Members of our energy and sustainability department prepare and provide project updates, goal progress measurement, and other relevant information to be reviewed by the Board. The Executive Sponsor of the ESG Steering Committee presents information gathered by the energy and sustainability department to the Board. DaVita’s Business Continuity (BC), Emergency Management (EM), and Facilities teams are responsible for the management of physical risks across DaVita’s outpatient centers. 30 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE ESG DATA TABLES—SASB METRICS AND TCFD REPORT

Strategy Disclose the actual and potential impacts of climate-related risks and opportunities on the organization’s businesses, strategy, and financial planning. A. Describe the climate-related risks and opportunities the organization has identified over the short, medium, and long term. The DaVita management teams described above have identified several climate-related risks and opportunities for the company, including through the third party analysis and assessment described herein. Climate and weather-related physical stresses on facilities and infrastructure are growing as the world continues to exhibit the growing impact of climate change; if not properly managed, these stresses may impact DaVita’s ability to consistently deliver quality patient care. Further, heat-related illnesses may impact DaVita’s patients in the long term. Finally, we recognize the risk of social unrest and disruption as a potential impact of climate change that may affect business operations and work to develop emergency management plans for such events. DaVita believes that the energy transition necessary to achieve global climate goals represents an opportunity for the business. We have set a goal to transition our facilities to 100% renewable energy by 2025 and already completed said transition for facilities located in the United States (“U.S.”) in 2021. In 2021 DaVita U.S. reached its goal to be 100% powered by renewable energy. Through a virtual power purchase agreement, our agreements to purchase energy from wind and solar farms now create as much clean energy annually as the amount of electricity we use in our U.S. operations. DaVita aims to accomplish 100% renewable energy procurement at all facilities worldwide by 2025. For the purposes of this TCFD assessment, DaVita defines the short term as the next 24 months; medium term as 2-10 years from now; and long-term as 10-30 years from now. Business planning horizons beyond 10 years are more challenging to forecast for DaVita given the difficulty of planning for unknown market, health, and regulatory environments. As such, we focused our first assessment of risks and opportunities on targeted geographic screening of assets and supply chain against physical and transition risks, knowing that the existing trajectory of physical climate impacts is largely locked in for the next 20-30 years regardless of global emissions scenarios. Over the short term, DaVita’s most important climate-related risks include, among others: 1. Acute physical risks: flood impacts from extreme rain, coastal flooding, and hurricanes may impact the operations of or access to our centers, the operations of our clinical laboratory or the operations of our central business offices. Wildfires and the resulting air quality issues may also impact our operations. The potential consequence associated with impacts from these risks is expected to grow over time. 2. Regulatory transition risks: almost half of our U.S. locations are located in a state or city with local GHG reduction or renewable energy goals; and over half of international locations are in countries with ambitious national GHG reduction targets. Therefore, our portfolio is highly exposed to existing and future GHG regulations, which we expect will increase costs on businesses without stated and effective GHG management programs. In the medium and long term, DaVita’s most important climate-related risks for active management include, among others: 1. Acute physical risks: as the effects of climate change continue to grow, DaVita’s exposure to the acute physical risks described in the short term will expand across its locations. The cumulative impact of repetitive damage may start to influence patient behavior and demographics (through climate-related migration and other factors) and may impact our ability to deliver services effectively. The growing prevalence of extreme weather events will likely place additional strain on electric power grids and physical infrastructure, disrupting the delivery of 31 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE ESG DATA TABLES—SASB METRICS AND TCFD REPORT

power, water, and sanitation to our locations. We expect that weather events such as hurricanes and wildfires will manifest in locations where risk to these hazards was historically low and there may not be sufficient capabilities or infrastructure to withstand the impact of such hazards. 2. Chronic physical risks: While we consider acute physical risks to be the “shocks” of anticipated extreme weather, chronic physical risks represent stressors to the system over time. In particular, extreme heat and sea level rise represent important chronic physical risks to DaVita. According to the National Institutes of Health, extreme heat may accelerate patient comorbidities due to the effects of heat stress, which may be a particular concern for dialysis patients. While DaVita’s locations are largely unexposed to coastal flood hazards today, expected sea level rise will change this picture in the future. Daily tidal flooding in coastal areas will likely reduce the ability for patients to reach DaVita locations, even in DaVita’s physical locations that are less exposed to this risk. DaVita’s climate-related opportunities align with our long-standing commitment to our Trilogy of Care: caring for our patients, each other and the world, and represent an area of strength for the company. DaVita has identified two areas of climate-related opportunity, among others: 1. Emissions Reduction Activities: Reduce GHG emissions consistent with approved science-based targets; specifically, reducing 50% of operational emissions and ensuring that supply chain partners representing 70% of Scope 3 emissions set climate change goals by 2025. These commitments could help the world limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. 2. Facility Resilience: Through ongoing evaluation of climate-related risks to our facilities, DaVita is positioned to improve continuity of care through better informed emergency and risk management and investments in resiliency. In the past year, DaVita has experienced impacts to our facilities primarily driven by extreme rain events, which overwhelm local stormwater systems and cause flooding within facilities. Using the results of the facility climate risk assessment, EM and DaVita will determine how best to align operational protocols and facility capital improvements in order to help mitigate identified vulnerabilities. B. Describe the impact of climate-related risks and opportunities on the organization’s businesses, strategy, and financial planning. To date, acute physical risks such as flooding from extreme rain have resulted in facility damage and business interruption costs for DaVita. When extreme rain events or hurricanes damage and flood our facilities, resulting facility downtime may impact the ability for patients to receive treatments. If there is limited ability to accommodate patients at other facilities or through home dialysis programs, the increased frequency of flood events could result in diminished health outcomes for patients and adverse financial impacts for DaVita. Based on current estimates, we do not expect the costs of potential facility damage and missed treatments resulting from flooding from extreme rain events and hurricanes to have a material adverse effect on DaVita’s business, financial condition, results of operation or cash flows over the next five years. We see opportunities in addressing transition risks and reducing our global emissions footprint. GHG emissions reduction projects reduce the organization’s exposure to fluctuations in the costs and availability of fossil fuels. Further, there are opportunities to enhance our operational resiliency as we help to ensure that supply chain partners are managing their own risk exposure to help prevent future supply chain disruptions. These and other risks associated with delivery of essential medical supplies are considered in our procurement strategy: our procurement team evaluates a vendor’s ability to provide medical supplies in a range of situations with climate-related risks, including pandemics exacerbated by climate change and severe weather events. Our procurement team works closely with EM to help ensure that supplies are available for centers effected by severe weather events including flooding, fires, and severe storms. 32 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE ESG DATA TABLES—SASB METRICS AND TCFD REPORT

We have evaluated climate-related impacts for key suppliers to determine where we may need to build additional redundancy in our supply chain going forward. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges to supply chains. While many global supply chain challenges can be linked to the COVID-19 pandemic, others result from acute or chronic physical impacts such as winter storms, extreme rain and flood events, and tornadoes, among other things. We are assessing ways to build redundancy in our supply chain to help prepare for extreme weather events. In addition, we are working towards having suppliers representing 70% of our scope 3 emissions have also set GHG emissions targets. This goal is part of our approved science-based target and represents an opportunity for DaVita and its suppliers to be market leaders and help ensure that our strategy is resilient against future regulations and evolving market expectations. We believe that other identified potential financial impacts resulting from climate change are of lesser magnitude at this point in time, but include, among others: • Increasing water costs due to water stress and drought; and • Increased supplier costs due to carbon taxes such as the EU carbon border tax on incoming supplies. Managing Climate Change Risk Disclose how the organization identifies, assesses, and manages climate-related risks. A. Describe the organization’s processes for identifying and assessing climate-related risks. DaVita engaged a third party to conduct a risk assessment of over 2,800 U.S. and 300 international outpatient dialysis centers and key supply chain partners. The third party assessed each DaVita asset against existing physical risks, including water stress, riverine/inland flooding, coastal flooding, and other extreme weather events such as heat and cold waves. The third party also analyzed all locations for regulatory transition risks related to GHG reduction commitments (including local net-zero targets) as well as carbon pricing regimes. Finally, DaVita evaluated the relative importance of the risk findings by assessing past consequences from various risks and forecasted the potential financial impacts of physical and transition risks on our enterprise. A summary of our estimated short term exposure to physical risks is below, as a percentage of patient treatment centers exposed to each risk: While we believe that it is important for our facilities to be aware of their individual physical risk exposure and plan accordingly, we assign relative importance to each risk based on known past facility impacts, which is how we determined the most important potential risks for active management, detailed below. 33 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE Tornadoes 33% Risk US sites exposed Intl sites exposed N/A (not in scope) Heat Waves 18% Riverine and Inland Flooding 13% 3% Coastal Floods and Hurricanes 9% 1% Cold Waves 7% N/A (not in scope) Wildfires 2% Drought/Water Stress 1% 10% ESG DATA TABLES—SASB METRICS AND TCFD REPORT

34 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE Short Term Flooding from extreme rain, coastal floods, and hurricanes; wildfires and air quality issues Time Horizon US sites exposed Medium and Long Term Acute: Extreme weather (e.g., wildfires) Chronic: Sea level rise/coastal flooding and heat waves In addition to the geographic risk screening, DaVita conducted a qualitative assessment of three climate scenarios based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report: 1. (IPCC) Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) 2.6: in this scenario, countries and organizations deliver on ambitious emissions reduction commitments to keep global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius by 2100. We believe that we are well-positioned for this scenario given our robust, science-based GHG reduction goals that are consistent with this global outcome. However, the physical risks that we face today will continue to increase even under the most ambitious IPCC scenario and we expect that we will need to continue to invest in risk mitigation measures for our outpatient facilities. 2. IPCC RCP 4.5: in this scenario, a transition to a lower-carbon economy is delayed and global warming is limited to between 2 and 3 degrees Celsius by 2100. DaVita’s GHG targets position us as a “first mover” in this scenario. In this scenario, physical risks significantly increase over time for DaVita, with more locations becoming susceptible to the impacts of heat waves, cold waves, and hurricanes. We believe that we will need to increase resiliency investments in this scenario, particularly in flood prevention and the installation of backup power. 3. IPCC RCP 8.5: in this scenario, a “hot house world” is realized as countries and organizations continue the status quo; emission reduction targets are not realized and global warming reaches 4-5 degrees Celsius by 2100. According to the IPCC, this level of warming will have disastrous consequences for sea level rise and severely impact agricultural productivity, water availability, wildfires, and flooding. In this scenario, it is possible that we will need to consider human migration patterns and ultimately divest the riskiest assets that sustain repeated damage. In this high-emissions world, we expect that companies that have reduced their emissions will continue to reap reputational benefits from emissions reduction activities, even if those benefits are not matched by changes in the regulatory landscape. In this scenario, the physical risk consequences play out. B. Describe the organization’s processes for managing climate-related risks. We believe that it is important to leverage existing programs and new strategies to manage our most important climate-related risks. Transition risks : We believe that our existing emissions reduction strategies and approved science-based targets position us well to manage transition risks across our physical asset portfolio and our supplier base. We expect that our investments in renewable energy, building efficiency, and process improvements will help us achieve our targets, and our robust supplier engagement programs will help our partners establish and achieve their emissions reduction targets. Physical risks : DaVita’s Business Continuity (BC), Emergency Management (EM), and Facilities teams are responsible for the management of physical risks across DaVita’s outpatient centers. These teams’ deep engagement across our facilities has helped DaVita mitigate physical risks at treatment centers and provide continuity of care for years. BC considers climate-related vulnerabilities at each facility and has robust community partnerships in place with local ESG DATA TABLES—SASB METRICS AND TCFD REPORT

35 DAVITA.COM/COMMUNITYCARE Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) to prepare for acute and chronic physical risks. The BC Steering Committee, led by the BC team and comprised of senior leaders, including the GVP of Real Estate, Development and Facilities, reviews risk assessments and incorporates the findings into operational plans as appropriate. We expect that our existing programs to mitigate climate-related risks will continue to evolve. Informed by our risk assessment, we are evaluating potential areas for engagement between 2022 and 2025. We believe that potential facility damage and disruption from flooding and other extreme weather events is one of DaVita’s most important physical risks in the short term. We plan to explore the effectiveness of potential mitigation measures at facilities identified as having higher risk exposure from extreme weather. The primary goal of physical risk mitigation will be to reduce facility downtime and increase the resiliency of our treatment centers. C. Describe how processes for identifying, assessing and managing climate-related risks are integrated into the organization’s overall risk management. A review conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2020 concluded that climate-related events such as loss of electricity and clean water, blocked roads, and mass evacuations could lead to the closure of dialysis centers and missed dialysis sessions. Studies cited by the CDC noted that missed or delayed dialysis sessions have been linked to increased hospitalizations and mortality for dialysis patients. As a result, climate-related risks are part of our broader risk management strategy. BC is aligned with our Enterprise Risk Services (ERS) team on assessing supply chain risk and business continuity plans for various departments. Additionally, BC provides periodic updates to the Audit Committee of the Board on Business Continuity no less than once annually. To help mitigate physical climate risks, BC assists with emergency preparedness and emergency response for the enterprise. We work with every facility to develop and test emergency plans and provide support as needed during a real event. We develop an integrated response to potential hazards and carefully coordinate patient care when significant events occur. In addition to event response, DaVita BC works to test and train DaVita’s care providers. This includes: developing training programs that result in demonstrated knowledge of emergency procedures and implementing drills and exercises to test emergency plans. Risks related to climate and weather are identified and assessed before developing and stress testing these plans and procedures. BC works proactively on issues in the context of climate change, working to mitigate the impact of potential future emergencies such as water shortages, power outages, and high water events that may be increased in severity by climate change. We also engage local emergency operations centers (EOC’s) and public health agencies across the United States with the goal of creating a more resilient healthcare community and being proactive in identifying disasters risks across the U.S. Leadership in BC and the ESG Steering Committee also coordinate with DaVita’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) and management Disclosure Committee to incorporate ESG related issues, including climate change, into DaVita’s broader ERM and corporate disclosure processes, respectively.
