VEON's Mobilink Bank Participates in COP28, Emphasizes the Role of Gender Inclusivity in Climate Finance Dubai, 11 December 2023: VEON Ltd. (NASDAQ: VEON, Euronext Amsterdam: VEON), a global digital operator that provides converged connectivity and online services, announces that Mobilink Bank, its financial services operating company in Pakistan, participated in the to the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai, UAE. Mobilink Bank's Chief Operating Officer Haaris Mahmood Chaudhary spoke at a panel on gender equality and gender-responsive finance to combat climate change in Pakistan.

Mobilink Bank, Pakistan's leading digital microfinance bank with over 45 million registered users, is among the first adopters of climate finance in Pakistan. Mobilink Bank has invested over PKR1.6 billion ($5.6 million) in green financing, primarily focusing on loans for solar applications in agriculture to promote renewable energy. Mobilink Bank is also one of the strongest advocates of gender diversity and inclusion in Pakistan, having allocated over PKR12 billion ($42.2 million) of subsidized financing to more than 66 thousand women entrepreneurs. It continues to provide digital, financial, and agritech solutions to farmers, enhancing sustainable agricultural practices with a gender-inclusive focus.

Speaking at a panel organized by UN Women Regional Office of Asia and the Pacific and Ministry of Climate Change and Environmental Coordination of Pakistan during COP28, Chaudhary emphasized the intersection between gender-inclusivity and climate initiatives.

It is often the most disadvantaged parts of the society that bear the brunt of disasters, including climate change. Women- a highly influential, yet underserved segment, are more susceptible to the drastic effects of climate change, and we aim at narrowing the gender gap to provide inclusive opportunities for them for holistic economic development. We believe that there is a unique opportunity to address many challenges at once: Financial community, especially when empowered with the digital tools that we have as a VEON Group company, can move the needle significantly in combatting climate change and building communities' resilience by gender-inclusive practices. said Chaudhary in his remarks on the COP28 panel.

VEON's comprehensive approach to disasters was recently recognized at the World Communication Awards, where VEON received the Crisis Response award for the efforts of Jazz, JazzCash and Mobilink Bank in the midst of, and during the aftermath of, the devastating floods in Pakistan in August 2022, as well as for Banglalink's support for communities facing Cyclone Mocha in Bangladesh, and Kyivstar's work in keeping Ukraine connected through the war.

VEON Group's sustainability initiatives, including in areas of diversity and inclusion as well as climate action, are outlined in its latest Integrated Report for 2022, available on the company website.
