As a long-term investor, EPP understands that strong financial results are intrinsically linked with responsible investment and operating practices. EPP was established in 2009 as a renewable energy-focused fund to help address the global risks of climate change, and to pursue a growing pipeline of attractive investment opportunities as the world transitions to low carbon energy. As a renewable energy investor, responsible environmental investing is fundamental to EPP's strategy. The firm is committed to investing in a socially responsible manner as well. EPP values its employees and, as an energy project owner and operator, recognizes the importance of maintaining a safe and team-oriented work environment, providing regular safety training, and promoting a progressive, open and equal opportunity workplace. EPP also endeavors to cultivate strong business and community relationships by establishing respectful and mutually-beneficial partnerships with contractual counterparties at its projects, and by maintaining vigilant compliance with local regulations, particularly those concerning air emissions at EPP's biogas facilities. EPP believes that operating in good faith towards its projects' employees, counterparties, and communities is the only way to position EPP's funds for sustainable and attractive returns for their limited partners.

EPP has adopted a Code of Ethics pursuant to Rule 204A-1 under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended.  The Code governs the activities of EPP's employees, who are held to high standards of integrity and fiduciary responsibility.  The Code mandates that EPP's employees avoid conflicts of interest, or the appearance of conflicts of interest, in connection with the firm's investment process.  Among other measures, the Code's policies for managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process include controls related to the following key issues:

- Avoidance of self-dealing by ensuring that EPP's principals do not have personal or financial interests in securities recommended for investment

- Internal approval processes for certain personal investments and trading accounts, and disclosure requirements around all such activitites

- Restrictions on activities with other companies, boards, and other organizations

- Ensuring that service providers offer the most effective services and the best economic terms possible, particularly if such service providers are EPP affiliates
