PERNOD RICARD - Universal Registration Document 2019-2020

3. SUSTAINABILITY & RESPONSIBILITY The four pillars of the good times from a good place roadmap

Health and safety Pernod Ricard constantly strives to eliminate occupational accidents, hazards, and diseases for all its employees and contractors. Pernod Ricard’s approach to Health & Safety (H&S) is underpinned by the “Créateurs de convivialité” vision. The Group is thus committed to developing a culture where everyone has a role to play and where employees take ownership of safety by sharing responsibility for their safety and that of their co-workers.



2030 S&R Roadmap

By 2020: employee accident frequency rate reduced for all sites to < 8.0 and the employee — accident severity rate to < 0.25. By 2025: become “best in class” in the Wines & Spirits industry by achieving the target — of zero operational injuries (employees and sub-contractors) at Pernod Ricard.

This policy has been approved by Pernod Ricard’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and its Executive Committee. It has been presented to the Board of Directors. The Executive Vice President, Human Resources, Sustainability & Responsibility oversees the implementation of the Group’s Health & Safety Policy. Affiliates Vice Presidents, and each Management Director at local level are in charge of implementing the Pernod Ricard Global Health & Safety Policy. ACTION PLANS AND NEXT STEPS The strategic priorities to achieve Pernod Ricard’s goal are to: develop a Culture where safety is at the heart of Convivialité ; — develop leadership through engagement, motivation and — empowerment; improve business performance through excellence in Health & Safety. —

Achieving this goal also requires management systems, in that respect, the Group’s active production sites are required to be ISO 45001 certified. Pernod Ricard is also committed to and actively works on a health & safety culture in which everyone is involved in taking care of each other through a culture of interdependence . In 2017, Pernod Ricard identified a need for change in terms of H&S. A tiered and focused approach has been launched targeting specific affiliates with the greatest potential for improvement. Third-party audits have been undertaken (10 sites) to develop a 3-year action plan linking culture and performance. In 2018, the Group defined its H&S Ambition by aligning leadership around a common vision. Senior leaders collaborated on developing the drivers of success, strategy and associated roadmap. In 2019, Pernod Ricard developed a H&S Roadmap and key performance indicators for short-term and long-term actions. It also agreed upon a governance model. From 2020 to 2025, the Group will communicate & roll out the roadmap to measure and share progress.
