Key updates (Ethical Partners Australian Share Fund):

- The Weighted Total Emissions (Scope 1 and 2) for the Ethical Partners Australian Share Fund have decreased by 50% over the last year (since the June 2021 baseline).

- The decline in the overall emissions profile of the fund is due to a number of factors. These include portfolio constituent changes in addition to changes in weights of key companies. We are also starting to see evidence of companies reducing their emissions over the period and we expect this to continue into the future. While there has been significant progress, we note that our emissions may fluctuate at time to time as positions in the fund change, however this will be continuously managed in line with our clear yearly education targets and our firm 2030 and 2050 emissions reduction commitments.

- The Ethical Partners Australian Share Fund’s weighted total emissions and WACI against the ASX300. The ETHASF’s weighted total emissions is 83% smaller than the ASX300 and the WACI is 55% lower than that of the ASX300.
