01.2. Describe your reasons for choosing a particular ESG incorporation strategy and how combinations of strategies are used.

Sovereign, municipal and supranational bonds are managed in-house. ERAFP's investment team is thus directly in charge of the implementation of the SRI policy defined by the Board. This approach is based on an ESG rating framework comprising ERAFP's five values (Human rights, Social progress, Employee democracy, Environment, Governance and transparency) which are declined into about forty criteria adapted to the specificities of countries and local governments.

Aside from the integration of best in class ESG criteria the Board of Directors decided to add three specific exclusion criteria for sovereign bonds. Are excluded from the investment universe, countries which:

- have not abolished the death penalty,

- practice torture,

- have recourse to child soldiers.

Our investment universe for direct investment is relatively limited since it only comprises € denominated bonds issued by OCDE countries. As a consequence rather than implementing issuer selection rules based on a ranking of European countries, it has been decided to set a minimum ESG average score to obtain in order to be eligible for investment : ERAFP cannot invest in a country with an overall ESG score which is below the average (50/100).

02.3. Provide a brief description of the ESG information used, highlighting any differences in sources of information across your ESG incorporation strategies.

Based on customised ESG scores and analysis provided by Vigeo, ERAFP's investment team ensures that investment proposals comply with ERAFP's SRI policy for this asset class: ERAFP cannot invest in issuers with an ESG score below average (50/100). On a bi-annual basis our ESG third-party providers (Vigeo) assesses our bond portfolios and reviews are conducted with the Investment Policy Committee of the Board. The SRI team completes Vigeo analysis with more qualitative data when it's necessary and reports to the ERAFP investment team.

In addition, ERAFP monitors environmental impacts of its sovereign bonds portfolio based on the analysis of its service provider for this asset class. In 2018, ERAFP has monitored carbon intensity, green and brown shares, trajectory in term of temperature and also physical risks for its portfolio and its Benchmark. This analysis allows ERAFP to manage its portfolio climate-related risks and opportunities. In 2019, as ERAFP has changed its service provider which is more specialist of corporate issuers, analysis have been conducted on carbon footprint and energy mix only. We will work to improve the scope of analysis in future years but as the portfolio almost does not move, the 2018 results are still quite relevant.
