Yuno ESG Policy Statement

The purpose of this Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Policy Statement is to outline Yuno’s
commitment to these core principles in all aspects of our operations. We recognise that integrating ESG
considerations is essential for sustainable growth, risk management, and long-term value creation for
our various stakeholders.

Yuno in ESG
In addition to the below intra-company initiatives, at the very heart of Yuno’s business is driving forward
environmental sustainability and social responsibility. Our technologies promote greater energy
efficiency and conservation, higher health and safety standards, engaging in recycling initiatives and
improving general housing standards across the property sector in the UK.

This is captured by our Mission Statement:

‘Yuno puts both the needs of our clients, partners and the wider sector at the heart of what we do. We
develop solutions to help drive higher standards and a more sustainable future for the property

Environmental Responsibility
Environmental Compliance
Yuno is dedicated to complying with all relevant environmental laws, regulations and standards in the
UK. We will continuously monitor and assess our environmental impact, striving to minimise our carbon
footprint and conserve natural resources.

Emissions Reductions
Yuno is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants in the UK. We prioritise
investing in eco-friendly technologies and initiatives where possible. One major initiative we have
undertaken is promoting working from home in order to minimise travel to and from work.

Resource Efficiency

Social Responsibility
Employee Well-Being
We prioritise the health, safety and well-being of Yuno’s employees. Yuno undertakes to provide a safe
working environment for all Yuno office-based workers. We commit to a positive and inclusive working
environment that promotes diversity, equal opportunities, and a good work-life balance. Promoting
working from home is one way we ensure Yuno workers maintain a good work-life balance, cutting out
transport time, expense, and hassle.

Equal Pay
Under the Equality Act 2010, both women and men have the right to equal pay for work of
equal value; this applies to all employees regardless of full or part-time status, casual or
temporary contract or length or service.

Yuno commits to put this into practice by ensuring that it:

  • maintains a systematic role analysis scheme which incorporates the principles of equal pay;
  • carries out regular monitoring on its pay practices and takes appropriate remedial action to
    resolve issues identified;
  • provides guidance for managers involved in decisions about recruitment, pay,
    benefits and promotions;
  • responds promptly to any complaints in relation to equal pay.

By following these principles Yuno intends to avoid unfair discrimination and reward.

Human Rights
We respect and support the principles of universal human rights. We will not tolerate any form of
discrimination, forced labour or child labour within our operations.

Community Engagement
Yuno will engage with local communities in the UK in a transparent and responsible manner. We will seek
to understand and address their needs and concerns and actively contribute to their social and economic
development – all of which is at the core of Yuno’s business.

Board Oversight:
Our Board of Directors will provide robust oversight of ESG matters in the UK and ensure alignment with
our organisation’s strategic objectives.

Transparency and Reporting
Yuno commits to be open and transparent about our ESG practices, goals and progress in the UK. Yuno
will comply with all reasonable requests from stakeholders and members of the public, should more
information on our ESG performance be requested.

Yuno operates within established accountability mechanisms through its different layers of governance
to ensure that ethical ESG practices are embedded throughout the organisation at all times. Our
Management Team is held accountable by our Board, and is responsible for fostering a culture of
responsibility within the organisation.

Our Board and Management Team are in turn held accountable by Yuno’s shareholders and investors.
The ‘Investors Shareholders Agreement’ stipulates Yuno’s obligations to its shareholders and investors,
which includes a high level of openness, transparency and providing regular reports on its developments
and practices.

Continuous Improvement
Yuno is committed to ongoing improvement of our ESG performance in the UK. We will regularly review
and update this policy to reflect best practices, industry standards and the evolving needs of our
