1. Ongoing monitoring of companies that are of significance importance to the portfolio - based on both portfolio weight as well as NBIM's voting rights.

2. We prioritised a number of issues in our interaction with companies in 2016. During the year, we engaged in dialogue with companies that we believed to be industry leaders on these issues. In addition, we looked at a number of company-specific incidents that occurred during the year.

3. NBIM has stated focus areas that relate to specific ESG risks. Based on these focus areas NBIM does an internal assessment on an annual basis where we identify companies that insufficiently inform shareholders of their exposure to relevant risk factors. Company dialogues are then initiated based on the results of the assessments
