      "If the company’s answers have shown significant action or willingness to improving their ESG risk management and/or solving and avoiding further ESG issues and controversies in future, the company engagement will be closed. Allianz will then either 1 continue to monitor the company’s future performance, or 2 remove the company from the future engagement list. This is depending on the level of success of the engagement’s outcome. Should answers be insufficient, the company shows no willingness to improve its ESG performance, or if the company has not responded to any of Allianz’s engagement communications over a given timeframe, the Chair of the ESG Board approves the restriction of that company from all proprietary portfolios based on the recommendation from AIM SE and the Group ESG Office. Exclusions of companies based on the engagement approach are also described in section 3.9.3. These decisions are taken once per year. Companies are reviewed and reassessed annually."
