Climate Engagement Canada (CEC) does not require or seek collective decision-making or action with respect to acquiring, holding, disposing and/or voting of securities.

Signatories are independent fiduciaries responsible for their own investment and voting decisions and must always act completely independently to set their own strategies, policies and practices based on their own best interests. The use of particular engagement tools and tactics, including the scope of participation in CEC engagements, is at the discretion of individual signatories. CEC facilitates the exchange of public information, but signatories must not exchange (including one-way disclosure) nonpublic, competitively sensitive information, including with other signatories, participants in engagements, CEC itself, and its investor networks. Even the exchange of information in the context of collaboration can give the appearance of a potentially unlawful agreement; it is important to avoid exchanging information which might result in, or appear to result in, a breach of corporate or competition law.

Signatories may not claim to represent other signatories or make statements referencing other signatories without their express consent. Any decision by signatories to take action with respect to the acquiring, holding, disposing and/or voting of securities shall be at their sole discretion and made in their individual capacities and not on behalf of CEC, its investor networks or their other signatories or members. Signatories must avoid coordination of strategic behavior between competitors that impacts or is likely to impact competition.

CEC and its investor networks do not act or speak on behalf of each other or CEC signatories. They also do not seek directly or indirectly, either on their own or another’s behalf, the power to act as proxy for a security holder and do not furnish or otherwise request, or act on behalf of a person who furnishes or requests, a form of revocation, abstention, consent or authorization. In addition, CEC and the investor network entities do not provide investment or voting recommendations, and signatories are not obligated by CEC to make investment or voting recommendations based on the investment or voting behavior of other signatories.

CEC and its investor networks do not provide investment, legal, accounting or tax advice. CEC and its investor networks do not necessarily endorse or validate the information contained herein.

The terms of engagement, responsibilities, rights and other information contained elsewhere and herein are intended to be interpreted in a manner consistent with the foregoing.
