Sustainability Report 2022/23

SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2022/23 WI TH REFERENCE TO THE GR I STANDARDS

Stakeholder Letter We are happy to issue our company’s 2nd sustainability report already. Far from becoming a yearly routine, we are in full implementation mode of our measures and improvement of our systems to quantify the success of these. The report relates to the financial year 2022/23. As the first report, It complies with the latest version of the international GRI standard. The business year 2022/23 marked the entry into many international organizations that help companies to structure their sustainability work. We have become a committing member of the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTI) that coordinates the strive for companies to achieve the 1.5 degree goal of EU’s Green Deal. Also, Beurer signed into the membership of UN Global Compact that defines our commitment to the United Nations SDGs (sustainable development goals). We are working together with German company Ecovadis to assess our management system in respect to our sustainability objectives. This cooperation strives for a year-by-year improvement of the whole organization and we are committed to that progress. To ensure a full compliance of our supply chain – both in social as well as ecological aspects – we have chosen the Amfori platform of the EU as an auditing partner for our suppliers. Al results are fully transparent on Amfori’s platform for our business clients. In the business years we have already included 55 of our suppliers into DEAR STAKEHOLDERS, Marco Buehler / CEO Beurer GmbH Marco Buehler / CEO GRI 2-22 the audit scheme, which is already 50% of our total number of outsourced manufacturers. We are proud that none of our suppliers had to report a critical deviation of social or ecological performance. As our biggest emission footprint lies in our produced products (scope 3 emissions) we started the development of the first recycled product range, following the principles of a circular economy. We have selected our heritage product line, the flexible heating products like heatpads and heating blankets to be the pilot for that. The resulting “Green Planet Line” will be introduced on IFA 2023 to our customers. It does not only incorporate recycled textiles and recycled plastic, but also a packaging that is plastic-free and made of 100% recycled fibers. We will also test a return system for end-of-life products which is free for the endconsumer, In our scope 1&2 emissions, we are constantly reducing our carbon footprint at our own sites. We follow the principle: reduce whatever we can, e.g. by producing solar energy instead of using fossil energy. To come to net zero scope 1&2 emissions we have decided to invest in a big forestation project in the Amazonas region together with our partner Bauminvest. I wish you a lot of joy reading the report and I promise to follow up relentlessly with the initiatives in the next business year. 3 2

HOW WE ORGANIZE SUSTAINABILITY WITHIN BEURER: At Beurer, we firmly believe that sustainability affects us all. That is why we have established a dedicated Sustainability Committee consisting of representatives from all relevant business units. By the full support of our executive board who is responsible for sustainability at Beurer and the Supervisory Board, we integrate sustainability into every aspect of our operations. Through collaboration and the engagement of all stakeholders we believe that we can progress towards a sustainable future. SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE SUPPORTED BY ALL EMPLOYEES EXECUTIVE BOARD SUPERVISORY BOARD 14 15

In order to determine the key issues to focus and report on, we completed a structured strategy development process. The clear objective was to ensure that sustainability becomes an integral part of our corporate strategy. The impact analysis along our entire value chain, together with the subsequent stakeholder dialogue, form the heart of our strategy process. The impact analysis was divided into 4 phases: 2.2 OUR MOST SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS Analysis of the upstream activities in our supply chain and the impacts on people as well as human rights, the environment, and the economy. (BILD ÄNDERN) A list of 21 potential material topics emerged that we evaluated further in the stakeholder analysis. 1 2 3 4 Analysis of the impacts in our own processes in production, logistics, our headquarters, and our subsidiaries. We focused on the ecological dimension (including our carbon footprint and the environmental impact of our packaging) and the social dimension (including the impact on our employees). Analysis of the impacts from using our products, from a customer perspective. Analysis of the impacts in the end-of-life phase of our products, including questions relating to recyclability and repairability. 16 17

We have reduced the room temperature to 19 °C during the winter months. ISO 14001 One plant is already working on the ISO 14001 environmental management system, two of our plants are currently working on the introduction of the ISO 50001 energy management system ISO 50001 + We have installed solar energy systems at several locations, and a large system is currently being planned at our plants in Hungary and China. Our plants continuously optimize the energy consumption of their machinery and equipment, such as soldering systems, air conditioning, lighting, hot water generation, heating, and they have developed concepts for waste reduction that are constantly being optimized. Our travel policy clearly regulates the preference for travelling by train over car over plane. Where available, we purchase our electricity through green electricity tariffs, thereby reducing our on-balance sheet Scope 2 emissions. This is in line with the requirements of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and corresponds to the approaches of the Science Based Targets. 22 23

Most of our CO2 emissions are generated during the production of purchased materials from third parties. Reducing these emissions is challenging, as they occur outside our direct area of responsibility. By contrast, the emissions we cause directly are easier to control and therefore easier to reduce. Our main goal in FY 22/23 was to improve the data quality of our carbon footprint. We reviewed the values from FY21/22 and compared them with the new values from FY 22/23. 3.1 PROTECTING THE CLIMATE THE CHALLENGE AND OUR GOAL Scope 1 Scope 2 Scope 3 Sum Scope 1 Scope 2 Scope 3 Sum Purchased Goods and Services Fuel/energy-related activities Upstream Transportation and distribution Waste generated in operations Business Travel Employee Commuting Downstream transportation and distributior Purchased Goods and Services Fuel/energy-related activities Upstream Transportation and distribution Waste generated in operations Business Travel Employee Commuting Downstream transportation and distributior t. t.* t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. t. Our carbon footprint decreased by 16.6 % in FY 22/23 compared to the previous year. However, this is primarly due to our decline in sales. As we sold fewer products, we also needed fewer materials to produce them. For this reason, emissions from purchased goods decreased by 23.3 % which is reflected in our overall emissions. In contrast, our emissions from business travel and employee commuting increased sharply as employees returned to the office more frequently following the COVID 19 pandemic and more business trips took place again. Emissions from upstream and downstream transportation also increased. However, this is due to the change in calculation methodology, as we now work more closely with our transport service providers to calculate emissions. “We want to reduce the emissions we generate directly at all our sites as far as possible (Scope 1), reduce emissions resulting from the purchase of energy at all our sites as far as possible (Scope 2), and reduce emissions in our supply chains where possible (Scope 3). In addition, we want to reduce the total amount of waste we generate.” OUR GOAL Since autumn 2021, an internal working group has been working intensively on recording our emissions and on developing measures to reduce them. Representatives of all 3 production plants and our headquarter are involved. Our employees are already implementing many measures and actions to reduce waste and CO2 emissions at our sites. 24 25

Material cycles – from raw material extraction to end-of-life and recycling – are the result of different stakeholders interacting with one another, which happens across the globe. We are mindful, that closed cycles can only be created when all stakeholders work together. The extraction of the raw materials, their processing and finally their disposal can produce emissions of various kinds. We do not yet have closed value chains because only a small proportion of our products come back to us at the end of their service life. The German Electrical and “We want to develop products made from materials with an optimal carbon footprint (e.g. minimising the amount of materials used, using the highest possible percentage of recycled materials, renewable raw materials or materials that can be recycled); with the longest possible service life and designed so that customers can reuse them over the longest possible period; which can be repaired and separated at the end of their service life, and with components that can be recycled or reused.” OUR GOAL OUR PROGRESS analysis has shown that the largest part of our carbon footprint comes from the materials we use. For this reason, we have examined how we can reduce these emissions and have therefore developed the Green Planet Line. We introduce the Green Planet Line in one of our main product groups Flexible Heating, consisting of the heating pad HK 123 XXL Cosy Grey Green Planet, the heating blanket HD 75 Nordic Grey Green Planet and the heating underblanket UB 60 Green Planet. The textiles of the upper and lower parts are made of 80 to 100% recycled materials. The housings of the handheld devices are made of 50% recycled plastic. In addition, the packaging is more compact and made of 100% recycled cardboard. In the coming years, the Green Planet Line will be expanded to include many more products from all product groups. This is the first step in continuously reducing our emissions from the materials we use. In order to further reduce the environmental impact of our products, we are working on a take-back system so that we can recycle the products at the end of their life cycle or return the materials to the material cycle.

Since the last amendment came into force in January 2022, old electrical appliances are no longer allowed to be disposed ofwith householdwaste, but instead must be collected separately and recycled. The EU is also focusing heavily on the circular economy in its Green Deal. The draft of a new EU Eco Design Regulation from March 2022 will provide important impetus for the future. We have made the circular economy one of our most important strategic goals as we transform ourselves into a sustainable company. 26 27

Our portfolio includes more than 1000 different products in different shapes and sizes, each of which is packaged to ensure it arrives safely at our customers’ premises, along with all the necessary product information either printed on or glued as stickers on the packaging. Our main challenges are to reduce the amount of packaging our customers have to dispose of and to ensure that waste materials can be separated easily without compromising on safety when shipping our products. We have defined the following measures: Management approach for 301-1 GRI 3-3 & 301-1 THE CHALLENGE AND OUR GOAL 3.3 OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING In the last period, we have focused on reducing packaging, using recycled packaging materials and packaging recyclability of newly launched products. According to the available capacity, we have also started to improve the packaging of existing products. OUR GOAL OUR PROGRESS “We want to make all of the packaging types we use, such as sales packaging, outer packaging and transport packaging, more environmentally friendly by using fewer materials. We also want to make it more sustainable by, for example, using sustainable virgin fibres, e.g. FSC standard or recycled materials and by using more recyclable materials wherever possible. The packaging should be as small as possible and the available transport options should be utilised to the greatest possible extent.” Replacing plastic packaging with fibre-based materials such as cardboard or pulp whenever possible Designing packaging to be as small as possible while taking into account the requirements of logistics, our customers and the market Using recycled packaging materials such as FSC materials or 100 % recycled fibres if available and in accordance with the technical requirements Avoiding the use of non-recyclable packaging materials (the recyclability is determined based on the recycling options available in Germany) Ensuring that different packaging materials can be separated Using as little packaging material as possible Cardboard 5,945.36 Plastic 2,911.73 Glass 1,496.57 The following materials are currently the main packaging materials that we use: MATERIAL QUANTITY IN T HD 75: 16 % smaller sales packaging MG 280: 41 % smaller sales packaging FC 45: 49 % weight reduction of the sales packaging 77 % transport volume reduction HR 2000: 28 % weight reduction due to a change from corrugated cardboard to recycled cardboard In the coming period, we will establish the technical base to collect more detailed data on the packaging used. The data collection will begin in 2023 and will allow us to better assess the impact of our packaging in terms of sustainability. Among other things, the data will provide an overview of the recycled content of the materials used and non-recyclable packaging components can be identified. In parallel, the knowledge about sustainable packaging is continuously expanded and specific targets will be defined for sustainable packaging at Beurer. Overall, we will further improve the sustainability of our packaging by focusing on minimizing the amount of packaging used, recyclability and the use of recycled materials. 16 % 41 % 49 % PET Blister Recycled carboard 28 % 28 29

For this reason, we are a member of amfori* and ensure that our contracts with more than 100 different business partners are aligned with the BSCI Code of Conduct set by amfori. This helps us to protect human rights and the environment in our global supply chains in line with internationally recognised principles, including the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights or the International Labour Organization Conventions and Recommendations. “We want human rights to be protected and environmental standards to be respected in our global supply chain. Therefore, we strive for comprehensive transparency in these supply chains, and assess and monitor fair working conditions, human rights and environmental standards when our products are produced. To this end, we use the European framework on due diligence.“ OUR GOAL OUR PROGRESS We started to audit our suppliers for environmental impact (BEPI) which helps us to to drive targeted environmental improvements in our supply chain and trade with purpose. In the financial year 2022/23 we were able to audit 55 suppliers according to environmental criteria and 78 according to social criteria. No significant potential negative environmental and social impacts were identified in this financial year. We also audit our suppliers on a regular basis, which includes on-site visits as well as an internal questionnaire to obtain a broader understanding of the situation. Medical devices are audited annually based on ISO 13485 and non-medical devices are audited on a biannual basis. If business partners receive unacceptable ratings, they have to define specific measures to improve their performance and draw up an improvement plan, which is checked in the following audit. *amfori = Business Social Compliance Initiative & Business Environmental Performance Initiaitive 30 31

In the reporting year, no substantiated complaints concerning breaches of customer privacy, leaks, theft or loss of customer data were identified. Nevertheless, we are aware that in today‘s digital age, we must take our digital responsibility seriously. Technology and the Internet are having a major impact on the environment and society, and as individuals and organisations, we must do our part to mitigate these impacts. As technology continues to advance and shape our daily lives, it is important that we prioritise sustainable digital practices. This also involves promoting digital privacy and security, as well as the ethiAs a next step, we analyze any incident stored in the database and initiate corrective actions if needed. This approach complies with the regulatory requirements applicable to us as a medical device manufacturer (e.g. EN ISO 13485, MDR). cal use of technology to prevent malicious activity and cybercrime. As we move forward in the digital age, it is important that we recognise our digital responsibility and take steps to make a positive impact on the environment and society. By taking a proactive approach, we can build a more sustainable and equitable digital future for generations to come. We are already certified for data security by the Technical Supervisory Association (TÜV) and will extend our digital strategy regarding green IT. THE CHALLENGE AND OUR GOAL 3.5 HEALTH & WELLBEING OF OUR CUSTOMERS As a developer and manufacturer of a variety of different medical, beauty and well-being devices and apps, we have a direct impact on the health, safety and privacy of our customers.

3.7 OUR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY GRI 3-3, 403-3, 403-4, 403-5 MANAGEMENT APPROACH Beurer has always considered it important to make a contribution to society and to people. For this reason, we decided to set up the non-profit Beurer Foundation in 2015 in order to promote education and support for disadvantaged children, young people and women and to preserve the environment. The Beurer Foundation is managed by the Foundation Board and the Project Management team. The Board of Trustees acts as an independent decision-making body and oversees the project results, while the German authority provides supervision on an ongoing basis. A breakdown by project and by region is provided in the following two graphics: Figure 1: A breakdown of funding by organisation in fiscal year 22/23. Figure 2: A breakdown of supported projects by regions in fiscal year 22/23. “Through the Beurer Foundation, we want to promote the education and training of disadvantaged children, young people and women.” OUR GOAL As a non-profit organisation, the Beurer Foundation is mainly funded by profits distributed by Beurer GmbH. The money received is used transparently for charitable purposes. Administrative costs are kept low through honorary leadership positions and part-time collaborations. To ensure that the project goals are reached and the funds provided are used for the intended purposes, each project submits a report twice a year, which is reviewed when the Board of Trustees meets. Supported projects can be regional (located in Ulm), national (located in Germany) or international (located throughout the world). One international example are our social projects with CONCORDIA. Since January 2023, the Beurer Foundation has been supporting one of the many Multifunctional Centers (MFZ) of the partner organization CONCORDIA social projects in the Republic of Moldova. The main objective of the MFZ is primarily to provide social protection for community residents in order to overcome precarious situations and improve their quality of life. The care is provided by a multidisciplinary team consisting of educators, social workers and a psychologist. The team also conducts outreach work in the surrounding communities in order to reach even more people. The MFZ Tîrnova also offers inpatient crisis intervention for children and mothers who have experienced abuse and/or violence. One of the many services offered at the Tîrnova MFZ includes after-school homework help and learning support for children and adolescents. This educational component will be fully funded by the Beurer Foundation in 2023. Currently, 20 children and young people between the ages of 7 and 18 receive after-school care and support at the MFZ Tîrnova. 15 additional children and adolescents live temporarily at the crisis center and also participate in the learning support. This pedagogical support is intended to increase the development opportunities and educational chances of the program participants and to prevent early school dropouts as far as possible. A local project is the cooperation with the Malteser Hilfsdienst Neu-Ulm e.V.: „FaF - Strangers as Friends“. With theirwide range of services for the people in need, the Malteser Hilfsdienst Neu-Ulm e.V. is an important partner in Neu-Ulm. That is why the Beurer Foundation has been supporting the project „FaF - Strangers as Friends“ for many years. With various course offerings such as German courses at different language levels, math learning meetings as well as math tutoring, we give many needy people a chance to improve their educational opportunities in order to lead a self-determined life without dependencies. In total, we were able to reach around 140 refugees from the regionwith these services in FY 22/23.

The data was collected in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. The data for Scopes 1 and 2 was accurately determined as it falls within our area of responsibility. However, collecting data for our Scope 3 emissions was more challenging. Some figures, such as emissions from purchased goods and services, are based on estimates. Other data, such as the emissions from the use of sold products, could not be determined yet because we do not know how the products are used by the customer. Next year, we aim to provide a more comprehensive and accurate assessment of our Scope 3 emissions. The quantities of materials usedwere estimated. To do so, one product from each parts groupwas disassembled and the materials that make up the product were weighed. These weights were then multiplied by the sales figures for the financial year 21/22, allowing us to calculate the quantity of materials used. This figure was then multiplied by the relevant emissions factor. The result indicates the associated carbon footprint. The packaging data for each product and the quantities of materials used for the packaging are stored in our ERP system. We multiplied this packaging data by the amount of incoming goods for the financial year 21/22 to calculate the total amount of packaging materials used. Some data is not yet stored in our ERP system. The packaging quantities for products sold in China and the USA and the packaging quantities for spare parts are not yet included in the data. The packaging material used in the warehouse is also not included. We aim to provide this packaging data next year. Thanks to our membership of amfori, we have access to the amfori sustainability platform. This platform allows us to connect with our suppliers and easily exchange data. We can also use it to assess our suppliers and track the sustainability of our supply chain. For instance, we can see how many of our suppliers have been audited for sustainability and where negative social or environmental impacts have been identified. The platform keeps the data updated and easily accessible at all times. Incidents that occur while using our products are processed and recorded in our process management tool as soon as they are reported. The number of employees at each location is centrally managed and updated monthly by the Human Resources department at our headquarters in Ulm. This enables us to easilymonitor global changes in our workforce. Data on our occupational safety system is collected both by an external provider and by our own trained personnel, who keep us updated on any new developments at each location and provide us with the latest information. Every project funded by the Beurer Foundation submits a report to the foundation twice a year. These reports include the project duration, project costs and the number of people reached by the project. The data in the report is collected and evaluated at regular intervals when the Board of Trustees meets. 40 41

4.3 DEFINITION OF MATERIAL TOPICS CHAPTER CHAPTER MATERIAL TOPIC MATERIAL TOPIC DESCRIPTION DESCRIPTION 3.1 Proteacting the climate 3.2 Our approach to the circular economy 3.3 Opting for sustainable packaging 3.4 Sustainable Supply Chain Management 3.5 Health & well- being of our customers 3.6 Our people “We want to reduce the emissions we generate directly at all our sites as far as possible (Scope 1), reduce emissions resulting from the purchase of energy at all our sites as far as possible (Scope 2), and reduce emissions our supply chains where possible (Scope 3). In addition, we want to reduce the total amount of waste we generate.” “We want to develop products made frommaterials with an optimal carbon footprint (e.g. minimising the amount of materials used, using the highest possible percentage of recycled materials, renewable rawmaterials or materials that can be recycled); with the longest possible service life and designed so that customers can reuse them over the longest possible period; which can be repaired and separated at the end of their service life, and with components that can be recycled or reused. ” “We want to make all of the packaging types we use, such as sales packaging, outer packaging and transport packaging, more environmentally friendly by using fewer materials. We also want to make it more sustainable by, for example, using sustainable virgin fibres, e.g. FSC standard or recycled materials and by using more recyclable materials wherever possible. The packaging should be as small as possible and the available transport options should be utilised to the greatest possible extent.” “We want human rights to be protected and environmental standards to be respected in our global supply chain. Therefore, we strive for comprehensive transparency in these supply chains, and assess and monitor fair working conditions, human rights and environmental standards when our products are produced. To this end, we use the European framework on due diligence.” “We want our products to make customers feel better and healthier and increase their life expectancy. In line with the precautionary principle, we systematically strive to ensure the safety of our products. When developing our products, we focus on the protection and safety of our customers. We exploit the opportunities afforded by digitalisation to improve our products and we guarantee data protection for our customers. This includes systematic efforts to mitigate risks related to information security (e.g. cybercrime or loss of customer data).” “We want employees to work in a safe and healthy work environment where they feel comfortable. We want to promote their satisfaction and motivation, ensure equal opportunities and create the basis for a good work/life balance.” 4.4 GRI CONTENT INDEX GRI 302-1 GRI 305-1 GRI 305-2 GRI 305-3 GRI 301-1 GRI 306-1 GRI 306-2 GRI 306-3 GRI 306-4 GRI 306-5 GRI 301-1 GRI 308-1 GRI 308-2 GRI 414-1 GRI 414-2 GRI 416-2 GRI 418-1 GRI 401-1 GRI 403-1 GRI 403-2 GRI 403-3 GRI 403-4 GRI 403-5 GRI 403-6 GRI 403-8 GRI 403-9 GRI 405-1 Statement of use GRI 1 used Online Link Beurer GmbH has reported the information cited in this GRI content index for the period 01/04/2022 to 31/03/2023 with reference to the GRI Standards.
