We have noted a multiplication of fraud attempts in which the name ODDO BHF is likely to be used. This is particularly the case for Portuguese-language websites that usurp ODDO BHF SE identity to invite you to make a payment. We would like to inform you that these websites are not legitimate and have been created by fraudsters. We therefore urge you to be extremely vigilant.
If you have any doubts about the authenticity of any documents or solicitations, please do not hesitate to contact your usual contacts directly or to contact us at +33 1 44 51 85 00.
In line with our desire to be a responsible actor through our investment policy, we also wish to limit our own impact on the environment and make sure that we manage our carbon footprint.
The Group's employees have a strong desire to make an internal commitment to the environment, by changing their behaviour and with the aim of reducing their environmental impact and that of the Group. They are therefore associated with the efforts initiated by the Group and project leaders for a constant improvement.
The carbon assessment that was carried out in 2020 using 2019 data is enabling us to keep track of our carbon emissions and establish the basis on which we will implement our action plan.

The priorities identified to achieve a credible reduction target cover 5 areas:
In France, Germany and Tunisia, employees meet in Sustainable Development Committees to propose actions that commit the Group and its stakeholders. Several initiatives have been put in place:
The Group has developed a responsible purchasing policy by using the sheltered employment sector and selecting responsible service providers and suppliers.
We are also committed to extending the scope of Ecovadis-assessed suppliers to the whole Group. A monitoring and verification process is systematically put in place within the framework of contracts with our suppliers and subcontractors to check compliance with regulations under the French Employment Code and the payment of social security contributions.
After obtaining a silver medal in 2017, ODDO BHF SCA was granted an Ecovadis gold medal in 2019, which was renewed in 2020. The three areas in which we have improved are environmental, social and ethical.
Our travel policy is also committed and we encourage the use of rail rather than air travel with a view to reducing our carbon emissions.
