1 MUNICH REINSURANCE AMERICA, INC. NOVEMBER 5, 2014

2 THE MUNICH RE GROUP One of the world's leading reinsurers Insures insurance companies Industry often involved in large loss events and climate effected events Industry leader in modeling effects of climate change Active in global climate-protection organizations (including U.N. Environmental Program and Global Climate Forum)

3 SUSTAINABILITY INDICIES AND RATINGS Continually listed in the FTSE4Good and the Dow Jones Sustainability Index since 2001 Listed in top sustainability indices and recognized by ratings groups around the world

4 FIRST STEPS Initial site energy benchmark performed in 2006 All electric site 415,000 sq ft (office space, data center, cafeteria, conference & fitness center) Built prior to the Energy Policy Act of 1992 Average annual electrical usage (15,899,568 kWh/year) Average annual water consumption (11,276,589 gallons/year)

5 THE RESEARCH STAGE Estimated targets Identified projects (peers, classes, trade shows) Created in-house models (to estimate savings) Used professionally engineered models (to validate savings)

6 MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS Solar Canopy System (2,819,582 kWh/year) P2 Cooling Plant (93,400 kWh/year) P1 Cooling Plant (275,000 kWh/year) Building Automation (3,500,000 kWh/year) Lighting Controls (1,300,000 kWh/year) Lighting Upgrade (1,800,000 kWh/year) Restroom Fixtures  (3,00,000 Gallons/year) VFD Installations (1,011,598 kWh/year) Natural Gas Preheat (in design for 2015)

7 IMPROVEMENTS IN PROGRESS Energy efficient transformers (400,000 annual kWh reduction) Occupancy sensor and card reader fresh air set back Scheduling fresh air set back Four season thermal film Fixtures permanently 20% dimmed

8 OTHER PARTS OF THE PROGRAM Recycled Paper For Copying and Printing Daylight Harvesting Vacancy Sensors Instead Of Occupancy Sensors where possible Wind REC’s For Non-Solar Powered Energy Improving Integrated Pest Management Program IAQ Program And Testing Default Duplex Printing Encouraging Video Conferencing to Reduce Travel Bicycle Repair Center On Site To encourage Cycling Commuting Electric Car Charging Stations Over 1 Mile Of Groundwater Recharge On Campus High Efficiency Ice Machines and Dishwasher High efficiency / Low Flow Sinks, Showerheads, and Restroom Fixtures Occupancy Sensor Controlled Plug Strips at Work Stations (132,740 kWh/year) High Efficiency Exterior Lighting Flat screen Monitors (114,941 kWh/year) Green Cleaning Program

9 RESULTS? --- OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL SAVINGS RECYCLING: Waste Audits Plastic and comingles Paper and cardboard Carpet and construction Fuel, refrigerant and cooking oils Organic and lawn WATER EFFICIENCY: Cooling tower Restroom fixtures Waterless urinals Low flow commodes Touch-less faucets NEXT STEPS (2015): Improved irrigation controls Well for irrigation Targeting 80% reduction

10 RESULTS? --- TOTAL KWH REDUCTIONS Targeting 80% reduction

11 RESULTS? --- TOTAL CO2 KG REDUCTION Targeting 80% reduction off baseline

12 RESULTS? --- TOTAL ENERGY COST REDUCTION (Targeting under $1 per square foot)

13 AWARDS AND RECOGNITION

14 SUSTAINABILITY “Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future” Steve Jobs
