the Company’s Enterprise Risk Management.

In 2019, Worldline conducted a climate Risks and Opportunities analysis with the objective to better respond to Worldline stakeholders’ need for climate-related information and better measure the climate impacts faced by Worldline to increase the Company resilience. A three steps methodology was executed: (i) identification of most material risk & opportunities, (ii) specification of the impacts; and (iii) assessment of climate related R&O (Risks and Opportunities). Mitigation actions per risk and opportunity were then listed. The most material Risks and Opportunities identified as well as the estimates provided for the financial impact analysis are the results of a consultative process that required three internal workshops involving contributors from all the relevant departments: Risk, Compliance, Environment and CSR, Data

Centres management, Strategy, Finance, Marketing, Logistics & Housing (L&H), Business Continuity departments. Based on these workshop discussions, a climate-scenario analysis was conducted to strengthen the relevance of the results. The methodology used also aligned with the TCFD framework and is based on Worldline existing Enterprise Risk Management framework. The table hereafter summarised the key findings of this analysis. None of the estimated financial impacts of these gross (or inherent) risks has been considered as severe. All these risks were already covered through Worldline ERM.
