1e Forslag Elect Director Arvind Krishna Vote rationale: The board should exercise objective judgement on corporate affairs and be able to make decisions independently of management. The roles of chairperson and CEO should not be held by the same individual. Where a company founder combines both roles, we may support this for a limited period, provided the board has put in place measures to mitigate any conflicts of interest.

3 Forslag Advisory Vote to Ratify Named Executive Officers' Compensation Vote rationale: The board is responsible for attracting the right CEO and setting appropriate remuneration. A substantial proportion of annual remuneration should be provided as shares that are locked in for five to ten years, regardless of resignation or retirement. The board should provide transparency on total remuneration to avoid unacceptable outcomes. The board should ensure that all benefits have a clear business rationale. Pensionable income should constitute a minor part of total remuneration. Global Voting Guidelines Avlønning av administrerende direktør Ledelsens anbefalning For Stemme Against

6 Forslag Report on Concealment Clauses Vote rationale: The board should account for material sustainability risks facing the company, and the broader environmental and social consequences of its operations and products. Sustainability disclosures should be aligned with applicable global reporting standards and frameworks to support investors in their analysis of risks and opportunities. Where a company’s disclosure does not meet our needs as a financial investor, we will consider supporting a well-founded shareholder proposal calling for reasonable disclosure. We will not support a shareholder proposal that appears to impose a strategy or prescribe detailed methods, unrealistic timeframes or targets for implementation.
