Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation
Wellington Management approaches the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) based on a philosophy of ensuring investment integrity and meeting clients’ expectations.
The SFDR, part of the EU’s Action Plan for Financing Sustainable Growth, has been a key focus for Wellington since its release in 2019. Having put in place the requisite product disclosures and policies for March 2021, we are now actively preparing for Level 2 requirements. Wellington is fully committed to ESG integration and sustainability with the support of firmwide Sustainable Investment Governance, Management and Leadership teams. We have also assembled a Sustainable Investment Regulatory and Third-Party Working Group to focus on the sustainability-related regulations. Our objective is to extend our partnership with clients to meet both their financial and sustainable investment goals.

FRAMEWORK FOR EVALUATING GOVERNANCE PRACTICES
The following document describes our governance practices.
For certain Wellington Management Funds and at the request of a separate account client, Wellington Management can apply exclusions to companies participating in economic activity which they may deem to be harmful to the environment or society. While not all clients may wish to apply exclusions, this document explains the policies of Wellington Management on the exclusions of issuers from our clients’ investable universe where our clients have elected to apply exclusions.
