Letter from our CEO To all our stakeholders, Since XP was founded back in 2001 , it has deeply transformed the historically concentrated Brazilian financial industry . We have always believed that to improve people’s lives we had to actively seek transformation and change the status quo . Fast forward to 2022 , the story was no different : we continued to offer best - in - class products and services to our clients, while taking a few steps further in the completion of our platform . Throughout the year, we have launched debit cards in XP and Rico brands, expanded credit card offering to Rico clients, launched the international investments platform, launched our digital assets trading platform, among other relevant developments of our existing products and services . In addition to the relevant impact on financial markets and clients’ experience with investments over 20 years, we are aware of our role in the Brazilian society . We recognize the long - term journey we are going through to integrate environmental, social and governance matters into our business and contribute to an increasingly sustainable planet . In 2022 , we continued to advance on the ESG agenda through our four pillars of action : sustainable investment solutions , sustainable transition , diversity and inclusion goals , and democratization of financial education . Message from our Leadership GRI 2 - 22 Organizational Vision 4

 

 

In the sustainable investment solutions front, we have one of the largest offerings of sustainable investment products in Brazil, with over R $ 12 billion in ESG - related Client Assets . Such products are distributed among ESG - themes funds, structured notes, and fixed income products . Allocation to ESG investments stood at 1 . 3 % of Client Assets and surpassed 227 thousand active clients . We believe there is still a large opportunity to develop sustainable investments in XP’s platform . 5 On the sustainable transition, we continued to adhere and support voluntary commitments, and international covenants, such as UN Global Compact, UN Women, Pact for the Promotion of Racial Equity, Carbon Disclosure Program (CDP), Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF), and Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) . Besides, we continued to implement governance processes and environmental and climate transition methodologies into our daily activities . We have further advanced on our diversity and inclusion goals in 2022 . The percentage of female employees increased from 26 % in 2020 to 35 % in 2022 , while the percentage of black employees increased from 17 % in 2020 to 21 % in 2022 . Additionally, the percentage of employees with disabilities increased from 0 . 7 % in 2020 to 1 . 7 % in 2022 , while the percentage of LGBTQAIPN+ employees increased from 3 . 9 % to 6 . 0 % between 2020 and 2022 . We are proud of the recent diversity and inclusion milestones and reinforce our commitment to continually evolve over the next years . Finally, regarding the democratization of financial education, XP Institute was founded in March 2021 with the mission to transform financial education to improve people’s lives and build a better country . Our main goal is to provide financial education to 50 million people over the next 10 years . In 2022 , Instituto XP positively impacted the communities in which we operate, with projects such as Educação Financeira Transforma, as well as relevant partnerships with Instituto Anima to develop Finlab, Instituto Kondzilla, Nova Escola, iFood, and others that are detailed throughout this integrated report . As I look into the future, I see a long journey ahead, and I am very proud of the ecosystem we have created so far . I believe our long - term corporate strategy is based on three main pillars : leadership in investments, cross - sell, and differentiation through premium quality and service levels . We will continue to leverage on the new features and products of our ecosystem to expand our leadership in our core : Investments . XP currently has 8 % of total Client Assets in Brazil, having gained almost 4 % of market share since the beginning of 2020 . We believe we have the most complete and advanced platform in the market and the largest and most well - prepared financial advisory network in Brazil, and we continue to build upon this competitive advantage . Furthermore, we have a great opportunity to unlock more value through the cross - sell of additional products into our client base . While this is still very incipient, we can already see that the adoption of new products, such as cards, digital accounts, and insurance, have helped us gain more share of wallet from our clients and improve their satisfaction levels . XP will continue to focus on serving an increasing portion of our clients’ financial lives and meet all their financial needs . We believe this strategy will allow us to break the relationships that clients still have with the legacy banks . And finally, we continue to differentiate ourselves from competitors with premium quality and service levels across the entire ecosystem . As the main investment platform in the market, we have a great responsibility of always providing our clients with superior experience when they engage with XP, delivering them the best value proposition . We remain focused on maintaining our competitive advantages and strong culture as we continue to position ourselves as one of the challengers in the Brazilian financial markets in the years to come . This integrated report further elaborates on our most recent milestones achieved in 2022 . Hope you enjoy your reading. Thiago Maffra CEO

Moreover, our research department engages with our stakeholders by publishing thematic analyses covering topics such as ESG, market trends, economic sectors, inflation, interest rates, and company analyses . Among the publications, we have the ESG recommended portfolio, which selects the 10 best stocks from companies with relevance and prominence in ESG aspects . 1 .

Analysis of supplier profiles and criticality in ESG issues, based on the Institutional ESG positioning project, which also considered the perspective of this stakeholder group ; 3 . Interviews with our leaders and key professionals in various business areas to identify XP Inc .

Goals & Performance GRI 404 I 404 - 1 Onbo a rding At XP Inc . , we breathe meritocracy and have a robust meritocracy cycle .

We also have "People's Forums," which calibrate the performance of the 360 appraisals and goal scores, improving accuracy of the process . As a result, we remove appraisal biases and the impact of external factors (such as the market or a crisis) on performance . New employee onboarding is the process of integrating a new team member into our company and its culture, providing them with guidance and training on tools and processes .

Our responsibility extends not only to integrating ESG aspects into our products and services . In order to minimize our environmental impact, we seek to guide the activities of our employees, partners, and representatives, thus promoting good practices in our corporate environment . We have incorporated the environmental variable into XP Inc . 's risk analysis and management, and we seek to reduce the negative impacts of our direct activities by promoting the efficient use of resources through the use of equipment that allows for reduced consumption, proper waste and effluent management, and the promotion of sustainable practices . We also enable flexible work within a hybrid model to reduce the environmental footprint of our direct activities . However, we prioritize the rental and use of building infrastructures with environmental certifications, such as our main office located in São Paulo, which was the first Brazilian project to achieve the highest Leed pre - certification for its alignment with the requirements of the U . S Green Building Council . En e r g y Water The data considers water and sewage consumed in our main office, which includes most of our operations . In the main office building, there are individual water meters, which allows the condominium to measure the individual water and sewage consumption of each of our floors on a monthly basis . Thus, the expense allocation value is sent, and the average value consumed during the year is estimated . GRI 303 - 5 Water consumption by source The data considers energy consumed in our offices located in Brazil, including São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte .

The building is responsible for collecting and controlling waste generated per floor, which is accounted for monthly by the number of bags . This enables us to measure how much waste we generate in our office and take possible measures to reduce waste generation . We value the use of recyclable materials and proper waste disposal, and thus have separation and sorting of rejects . In order to mitigate the use of plastic material in the offices, we implemented actions to deliver mugs and squeezes to all employees during our onboarding process . Since 2020 , XP Inc . has been performing reverse manufacturing and environmentally correct disposal of its non - environmentally classified electronic waste, i . e . , its obsolete IT equipment such as desktops, monitors, and peripheral cabling, in partnership with a company specialized in technological waste management¹ . Such disposal resulted in the planting of 83 seedlings in 2020 , 64 seedlings in 2021 , and 38 ² seedlings in 2022 , resulting in the planting of 185 native tree seedlings for the “Amigos da Mata” project through the “Instituto Refloresta” .

Since 2019 , XP Inc . has been conducting its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory with the goal of identifying opportunities to reduce its emissions based on a comparative baseline from that year . Our direct emissions (scope 1 ) and indirect emissions (scope 2 ) have been offset since then . Scope 3 emissions, although offset since 2019 , only considers liquid effluent treatments, solid waste treatments, employee commuting to the workplace, business travel by aircraft, business travel by rental car, upstream services, and home office . For 2019 and 2020 , XP Inc . neutralized its scope 1 , 2 and 3 emissions with the acquisition of carbon credits from conservation projects (REDD+), in partnership with company “Biofílica” . In 2021 , the Company also neutralized its emissions with conservation projects (REDD+) for scope 1 and 2 , and with biogas recovery projects for scope 3 . In 2022 , we neutralized our total emissions of 6 , 597 tCO 2 e through conservation projects (REDD+) for scope 1 and 2 , and renewable energy projects for scope 3 , in partnership with Future Carbon . Compiling data from headquarters, branches, and employees, from scopes 1 , 2 , and 3 , as defined earlier, XP Inc . 's GHG footprint in 2022 increased compared to 2021 , mainly due to the increase in direct emissions, scope 1 , by approximately 10 % , which includes our fugitive emissions from air conditioning units and fire extinguishers in our offices, which can be justified by the reduction of employees in the work from home model and the increase in the use of offices . In addition, there was an increase in scope 3 emissions by about 20 % , mainly related to the increase in demand for business travel . Despite significantly increasing the number of employees between 2020 and 2022 , given the high growth of the company, our emissions decreased mainly because we adopted the hybrid work model, reducing our direct emissions . 2019 2020 2021 2022 Scope 1 (tCO2e) 2,649 5,083 2,927 3 , 238 Scope 2 (tCO2e) 245 22 270 143 Scope 3(tCO2e) 3,613 2,010 2,660 3 , 214 Total Greenhouse gas emissions (tCO2e) 6,508 7,315 5,858 6,597 55 GRI 305 - 1 I 305 - 2 I 305 - 3 Carbon Footprint

Institutional Investors ESG Initiatives XP Private XP Private, focused on high - income customers, has advanced in its journey to integrate in an increasingly systematic manner the environmental, social, and governance dimensions in its way of managing investments . 2022 ESG Letter I XP Private The 2022 ESG Letter focused on addressing some of the main trends that are expected to impact society, companies, and investments in the current moment and in the coming years . The letter also highlights the importance of understanding these trends, as they are not predictions but rather changing movements that have evolved over time to become widely observable forces, thus having a high probability of transforming sectors, industries, and behaviors . Ten trends were mapped out for the coming years, and potential implications or opportunities for Brazilian investors were highlighted . The trends include : • A vision for a significant reduction in emissions and the neutralization of GHGs, thus following the Race to Zero campaign. • Modification of agribusiness and investments in the food sector due to the movement to seek multiple alternatives to animal protein. • Substantial reduction in the use of fossil fuels, redirecting public and private investments to make the energy transition viable. • Rethinking business models and investing in competitive advantages and conscious consumption. • Prioritizing mechanisms to reduce disparities both for ethical reasons and for economic interests. 62 XP Institutional Investors is a channel within the structure of XP Wholesale Bank, acting as a generator of products and initiatives, seeking to implement ESG controls in investment processes to contribute increasingly to the growth of the ESG agenda . In addition, there is pressure from our investors that are increasingly driving ESG requirements and demands . Retirement Plans In 2021 , we designed the first ESG credit fund of funds portfolio for a retirement fund, allocating R $ 200 million, while throughout 2022 the strategy grew and reached R $ 320 million . This growth in assets reflected in the allocated managers, generating greater engagement among managers who began to improve management models and include ESG aspects, as well as designing dedicated products with more transparent investment processes . Insurance In order to maintain our commitment to the topic, we hold a recurring agenda with PREVIC, SUSEP, and Abrapp – regulators and associations for market best practices and knowledge about the new paths and adaptations of the ESG agenda to the market of foundations and insurers . We also have the “Insurance Week,” an event dedicated to insurers on the new SUSEP sustainability circular . In 2022 , XP Advisory launched a dedicated fund framed for the resolution of Insurers (allocation of insurance reserves) and raised over R $ 50 million in just 3 months .

All our employees participate in the 360 assessments every six months, and are evaluated by leaders, peers and stakeholders based on two main vectors: performance and culture. In 2022, our variable compensation, including Total Bonuses and Share Based Compensation, accounted for more than 60% of our employees' compensation for the year. Furthermore, our greatest incentive for our employees today is the possibility of joining our partnership through the Restricted Share Units (RSUs) and Performance Share Units (PSUs) model, with a vesting period of at least five years .

As a financial services company, we have specific responsibilities to keep our customers' information and the company's proprietary information confidential . For this reason, XP Inc . has information security controls and data privacy protection through robust processes and technologies . In 2022 , XP Inc . suffered no leaks, theft or loss of client data . Our Privacy Policies are public, and their main objective is to convey, in a clear and transparent way, the purposes for which client data is collected . All information processed in our environment has well - defined purposes and related legal bases, thus ensuring that it is processed respecting the pillars of data privacy . Our documents also detail the rights of data subjects and the main channels and ways of exercising such rights, under the terms of the Brazilian General Personal Data Protection Law ("LGPD") . The Board of Directors and executives becomes aware of information security and data privacy risks through the recurring agendas in the Risk and Audit Committee, with the purpose of : • Promoting timely decision - making on risks by monitoring the company's exposure to data security and privacy threats; • Monitoring the security and privacy performance by using timely and accurate information ; • Reporting the status to the stakeholders. Thus, the company's Board of Directors and executives support the Superintendent of Information Security (CISO) in establishing the overall business - oriented security and privacy strategy, including protection requirements in the company's business planning processes and allocating appropriate resources . Data Privacy and Information Security GRI 418 - 1 I SASB FN - CB - 230a.2 I FN - EX - 550a.3 Awareness actions and training on Information Security and Data Privacy are periodically carried out as a way of ensuring that all employees are aware of their responsibilities in relation to the subject . Some examples of actions aimed at employees : • Monthly phishing campaigns, simulating real scenarios of ransomware attacks ; • Sending of security bulletins, publishing and disseminating awareness videos, and making specific training available on the intranet ; • Carrying out internal audit tests (resilience against ransomware and mobile app resiliency), which simulates different scenarios of attacks against the XP Group environment and exercises the teams' response to these "invasions" . We have improved the implementation of the information classification project, with the main objective of mitigating the risk of data leaks or improper access to sensitive information produced internally . XP Inc . implemented information security controls and data privacy protection through processes and technologies, as well as systems for monitoring actions carried out in the internal environment . These controls are constantly assessed to ensure that they have been correctly implemented and are used according to best market practices . We have a structured area responsible for monitoring and responding to malicious actions, with teams working 24 x 7 , as well as reviewing implemented controls based on lessons learned . 76

 

 

The interest of XP Inc . and all its partners is always to help Brazilians to invest better, offering quality products and services and always aiming at customer's benefit . Any action other than that would not be in line with our culture and would not be sustained in an environment in which we work every day to offer better investment conditions to clients . In 2021 , the Advisor Governance area launched the Governance and Integrity Seal, which consists of recognizing the best practices adopted by accredited offices that had the best performance within XP's compliance rules, considering pillars such as Governance, Integrity, and Education . The Seal initiative fostered a positive impact among the accredited offices, with adhesion of approximately 70 % of the network . From this percentage, in 2021 we had 13 % of the offices were classified and, in 2022 we evolved to 30 % of the offices classified as eligible for the Seal, i . e . , those that have the highest level of governance and integrity among the aspects analyzed during the program . Being adherent to regulation is not a simple task, but remaining in compliance is a fundamental assumption for a good business partnership . Therefore, this action is of the essence to raise the bar of excellence and reliability of the advisor network, challenging and engaging accredited offices in achieving robust and resilient governance .

We also understand climate risk as the possibility of losses caused by the materialization of physical risks, including extreme weather events and chronic changes in climate patterns, or transition risks, including reputational, legal, and market risks that may arise because of transitioning to a low - carbon economy . Recognizing the importance of effectively managing these risks in our business, we have established a Social, Environmental and Climate Risk Department since 2020 . This department is seamlessly integrated into our Risk and Compliance Executive Board, with governance overseen by the organization's Risk Committee . We proactively manage social, environmental, and climate risk associated with our activities, customers, operations, suppliers, and products . This includes comprehensive risk management stages such as identification, rating, analysis, monitoring, mitigation, and control . Since 2022 , we have taken responsibility for Banco XP's compliance with the new Central Bank regulations and for XP Seguros’ adherence to the new regulations on sustainability risk . Additionally, we actively record and manage any losses that may arise from social, environmental and climate risk . In 2022 , we updated our ESG Policy to our Social, Environmental and Climate Responsibility Policy (PRSAC), which aims to reinforce the social, environmental, and climate principles and guidelines applied to our business, activities, processes, and relationships with stakeholders, seeking to prevent and mitigate negative impacts and expand positive impacts on the environment and society . 2020 2021 2022 Created the Social and Environmental Department.

We are dedicated to evaluating 100 % of our clients and suppliers, employing specific criteria that prioritize social, environmental, and climate considerations when approving relationships . One crucial aspect of our evaluation is the adherence to our Prohibited Activities List, which guarantees that XP Inc . abstains from engaging in any associations with entities or individuals included therein . By adopting this rigorous approach, we actively uphold our core values and principles, reinforcing our unwavering commitment to promoting responsible business practices . In addition to incorporates a restricted lists, our List of Prohibited Activities, our Onboarding process comprehensive search system that encompasses news, and administrative and legal actions . If any information pertaining to social, environmental, or climate concerns arises during this process, our dedicated team, the Social, Environmental, and Climate Risks team, is engaged to provide their expert evaluation regarding the continuation of the relationship . This approach ensures the preservation of our steadfast commitment to responsible business practices while prioritizing partnerships with like - minded entities that share our values . In 2022 , we took a firm stance and declined involvement with 54 companies and individuals who were associated with activities on the List of Prohibited Activities or who exhibited significant social and environmental issues .

The Social, Environmental, and Climate Rating not only influences the company's Credit Rating but also has a direct impact on the approval levels and validity of risk assessments for each operation . Operations with significant exposure to socio - environmental and ESG risks are subject to more stringent approval governance through the ESG Committee, as detailed in the ESG Governance section . Furthermore, our risk assessment process incorporates a Restricted Sector List that imposes specific restrictions based on the nature of the relationship between XP Inc . and the client . For credit operations and all DCM operations, companies operating in these sectors are prohibited from engaging in transactions with us : List of Restricted Segments Prohibited: Credit, derivatives, distribution coordinator/structurer Allowed: Account opening, investment, FX, distribution of XP Platform Industry and trade of weapons and ammunition 84 Cultivation, industry and marketing of tobacco Production or trade of alcohol beverages (excluding beer or wine) Production or trade of asbestos Uncertified wood and forest products Production and trade of radioactive materials Gambling, casinos, and equivalent companies Ocean fishing with nets longer than 2.5 km.

Our methodology meticulously assesses and categorizes the socio - environmental and climate risk of each operation, primarily considering four key evaluation factors : potential sectoral risk ; social, environmental, and climate management capacity ; social, environmental, and climate performance, and controversial ESG issues . By analyzing these qualitative factors, we generate a Social, Environmental, and Climate Rating, which is classified into five levels : • Rating A (indicating very low social and environmental risk) • Rating B (reflecting low social and environmental risk) • Rating C (indicating an average level of social and environmental risk) • Rating D (representing a high level of social and environmental risk) • Rating E (indicating a very high level of social and environmental risk) Since 2021 we analyze all our DCM operations for Social and Environmental Risk . In 2022 , we integrated the Social, Environmental, and Climate Rating into XP Inc . 's Credit Rating model, ensuring that the evaluation of a company's social, environmental, and climate performance also contributes to the assessment of its economic and financial performance .

 

 

The New Product Policy at XP covers new products or activities in which the Firm may choose to engage . Generally, new business lines or new markets that materially impact the Firm’s risk profile, impose new substantive regulatory obligations, or require major process and/or technological changes would require approval under this procedure . Each new product has a Sponsor . The Sponsor, often the individual proposing the new activity, oversees the new product’s progress throughout the approval process . Once all the supporting documentation is completed, the activity undergoes the Assessment stage . The assessment serves as a consolidated data source where all impacted teams such as Risk, Operations, Finance or Legal, can provide input and identify any concerns or relevant information that would enable an informed decision to be made on the approval or denial of the new product . In this context, we performed a social, environmental, and climate risk analysis for the prospected product, thus identifying potential impacts that may be generated, as well as material, reputational, or legal risks from an ESG perspective . Finally, the Sponsor compiles the information for presentation to the New Activity Committee, made up of the CEO and board of XP’s Directors . Supplier Certification Process New Products Process GRI 2 - 23 I 2 - 25 I 2 - 6 I 3 - 3 I 201 - 2 I 204 - 1 I 308 - 1 I 308 - 2 I 412 - 1 I 414 - 2 Our supply chain. it is mainly composed of 3 macro categories: 1. Technology; 2. Marketing; 3. Corporate. From an ESG point of view, 100 % of our suppliers are evaluated from a social, environmental and climate perspective , and those classified as having low potential for impact undergo a simplified evaluation process through a survey of media reports, administrative processes and lawsuits and banned lists . Suppliers classified as having medium and high impact potential undergo a more complex evaluation process, which has its own methodology for evaluating and classifying socio - environmental and climate risks . This methodology includes an ESG questionnaire and takes into account a series of topics such as diversity, environmental compliance, labor relations, certifications, among other factors . In addition to our rigorous evaluation process, we also have contractual clauses that guarantee us the right to terminate the relationship with any supplier that may be involved with issues related to sexual exploitation, disrespect for the environment, diversity and free union association, slave and child labor and corruption, among others . Through these efforts, we understand that we can contribute to a responsible supply chain that promotes business practices and positive social and environmental outcomes . 85

 

 

GRI 2 - 28 I 3 - 3 I 201 - 2 Our Exposure to Social Environmental Risk In 2021 , we have developed our Social, Environmental and Climate Risk System . It takes into account our methodology for Assessing and Classifying Socio - environmental and ESG Risks, as well as the sectoral classifications of the Green Taxonomy, developed by the Brazilian Federation of Banks (Febraban) . In 2022 , we updated our system with several improvements, such as the inclusion of climate criteria in the evaluation methodology . The implementation of our proprietary system allowed us to carry out individual analysis of both individuals and companies, and mass classification of XP Inc. economy sector. With the analysis and classification of the entire client base (individuals and companies), suppliers and XP Inc.'s credit portfolio, several socio - environmental and climate quality indicators of our portfolios could be developed. These indicators are periodically monitored by the Socio - environmental and Climate Risk area through our ESG Dashboard, making it possible to assess and monitor the degree of exposure to socio - environmental and climate risk of the company's portfolios. As of December 31 st , 2022, our loan portfolio had only 4% of risk allocated to companies with high and very high socio - environmental risk. We understand that the socio - environmental and climate risk system is essential for us to evolve in portfolio management and in the identification of socio - environmental and climate risks and opportunities for XP Inc . Membership Associations We continue to participate in various committees and working groups related to socio - environmental and climate risks . Within the scope of the Brazilian Federation of Banks (Febraban), we participate in the ESG Committee and in four specific working groups : • Climate Squad : seeks to discuss methodologies developed globally from the perspective of climate risks . We aim to develop and implement tools for climate finance management, applicable to the Brazilian reality of banks . Among the topics discussed is the assessment of physical risk and tropicalized transition risk scenarios, as well as the measurement of climate sensitivity and financed emissions of the credit portfolio . • Regulation Squad : seeks to deal specifically with regulations recently published by BACEN, thus discussing adaptations to new standards . Among the topics addressed in the working groups, there is the implementation of the loss base and stress test . • Sustainable Finance Squad : seeks to expand the knowledge of banks in sustainable finance, promoting training on sustainable debt instruments for investment banking and corporate credit areas . • Deforestation Squad : The purpose of the working group was to mobilize commitments to discuss the implementation of deforestation risk management in agricultural chains in different segments of banking operations . At ABBC, we are coordinators of the Socio - Environmental and Climate Risk Commission . At the Financial Innovation Lab, we participate in the ESG Risks working group . 86

 

 

GRI 2 - 1 I 2 - 23 I 2 - 6 I 201 - 2 XP Inc . is fully aware of its responsibility to invest in the transition towards a low carbon economy, actively working to minimize both its direct and indirect environmental impacts and mobilize its entire ecosystem towards this transformative path . We recognize that climate change will have far - reaching consequences for society and the economy, presenting both risks and opportunities . Understanding the gravity of this issue, we believe that fulfilling our purpose of "improving people's lives" necessitates a committed and responsible approach to addressing the challenges posed by climate change . Notably, data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) underscores the heightened vulnerability of Brazil and Latin America to the impacts of a global temperature rise exceeding 2 ƒ C . Furthermore, regulatory pressures, exemplified by the Central Bank of Brazil's initiatives and new regulations on Social, Environmental, and Climate risks, reinforce the need for proactive action . XP Inc . firmly believes that achieving the objectives outlined in the Paris Agreement demands collective efforts, with the financial system playing a crucial role . Accordingly, we accord great importance to this topic in our business agenda and are consistently advancing in our journey to effectively manage climate risks and capitalize on opportunities . We are diligently assessing our exposure to climate risks through our participation in initiatives such as the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) . Our objective is to develop a comprehensive transition strategy and proactively prepare for forthcoming regulatory requirements in this domain . We remain committed to comprehensively examining the potential impacts of climate change on XP Inc . 's business, as detailed in the social, environmental, and climate risk section above . Moreover, we are progressively prioritizing products that make positive contributions to the climate agenda . By doing so, we aim to encourage our customers and stakeholders to duly consider the climate - related aspects when making their choices and investments. Our Climate Responsibility Climate Risk We understand climate risk as the possibility of losses caused by the materialization of physical risks, including extreme weather events and chronic changes in climate or transition patterns, including reputational, legal, market risks, among others, that may materialize as a consequence of the transition towards a low carbon economy . Climate risks represent a systemic challenge for the global economy, as they can interact with risks that traditionally affect the financial system and raise new questions . In 2022 , we expanded the scope of our work on climate risks and strengthened this variable in our social, environmental and climate assessments, where we adopted the Green Taxonomy developed by Febraban to identify the sectors most exposed to climate change and through our Social, Environmental and Climate, we assess our clients on their practices for identifying and managing climate risks, as well as their greenhouse gas emissions, as both practices can impact the Social, Environmental and Climate Risk Rating and, consequently, the pricing of transactions . Climate Sensitivity We measure the climate sensitivity of our credit portfolio, applying the Climate Risk Sensitivity Tool, developed by Febraban . The methodology combines relevant variables – sectorial rating and credit rating – and proportionality – representativeness in the portfolio and weighted average term of transactions – to define the most sensitive clients in our portfolio . As of December 31 st 2022 , 12 . 7 % of our credit portfolio was allocated to customers with high sensitivity to climate risks, down 2 % versus 2021 . It is important to highlight that, at the time of the analysis, 84 % of clients with high sensitivity had a Social, Environmental and Climate Rating of A or B , that is, clients who, despite being exposed to climate risk, already have environmental and climatic risk management practices . Despite their higher sensitivity, these clients also have good credit quality . 87

 

 

Published in 2017 , the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate - Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) aim to encourage the disclosure of financial information related to climate risks and opportunities, allowing investors to make more informed decisions . XP Inc . recognizes the relevance of the TCFD and is working to ensure greater adherence to the recommendations that have a high degree of synergy with the new Socio - environmental and Climate risk regulations . In order to ensure greater transparency and greater adherence to market initiatives, since 2021 XP Inc . also actively participates in the Febraban Climate Squad, which aims to assist Brazilian financial institutions in the process of incorporating TCFD recommendations . The table below summarizes the launched and ongoing initiatives for joining the TCFD : TCFD Pillar Actions Taken and in progress Governance • Social Environmental & Climate Risk area that reports to our CRO and our ESG Chapter. • Social, Environmental and Climate Risk Commission; • Inclusion of the theme in the agendas of the Board and Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.

Metrics and Goals • Measuring scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions from our activities and a goal of neutralizing 100% of these emissions. • Measuring of our financed emissions and metrics for monitoring the evolution of the issuance intensity of our credit portfolio. • Report our sensitivity to climate risks, our direct emissions and financed emissions under the TCFD. TCFD Recommendations 88

 

 

In order to identify the most relevant climate - related issues for our clients that could pose risks for XP Inc . in the short, medium, and long term, we analyze public information from over 100 Brazilian companies that respond to the CDP . The risks are categorized based on their climate nature (physical or transitional) and their potential to materialize in the near, mid, and long - term . By conducting this assessment, we not only diagnose relevant issues for our portfolio and the economy as a whole, but also strengthen the integration of the climate variable in our risk assessment processes . Potential Impact Climate Event Climate Risk Category Short Term Medium Term Long Term Change in consumer behavior and failure to manage climate risks affecting the companies' reputation Transition Risk High Very High Very High Changes in climate patterns affecting production capacity, working conditions or the supply chain and directly affecting the production capacity of companies Physical Risk H i g h H i g h H i g h Water crisis raising the cost of water Physical Risk M ed i um M ed i um M ed i um Extreme events affecting production capacity, working conditions or the supply chain and directly affecting the production capacity of companies Physical Risk H i g h H i g h Very High Extreme events, in particular heavy rains and droughts, affecting the companies' physical assets and buildings, leading to an increase in cost overruns Physical Risk H i g h H i g h H i g h New climate regulations and NDCs imposing limits on pollutant emissions or adaptation measures, and leading to fines or making it difficult to obtain permits Transition Risk Lo w H i g h H i g h Carbon pricing or offset requirements leading to higher operating costs Transition Risk H i g h H i g h Very High Risk of sunken assets or with loss of value in view of climate risks, especially transition Transition Risk R e m ote Lo w M ed i um Physical and transitional risks reducing generation capacity and increasing energy and fuel costs or leading to penalties Physical and Transition Risk H i g h H i g h M ed i um Physical and transition risks elevating credit risk and leading to losses in financial institutions Physical and Transition Risk M ed i um H i g h H i g h Climate litigation Transition Risk Lo w M ed i um H i g h 89

 

 

Financed Emissions In 2022 , we demonstrated our commitment to environmental responsibility by joining the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) . Through this partnership with other financial institutions, we developed harmonized methodologies for measuring financed emissions, specifically scope 3 , category 15 emissions . We applied this methodology to our wholesale loan portfolio and identified that throughout 2022 , we contributed to the issuance of approximately 64 , 621 tCO 2 e . This corresponds to an average intensity of 9 . 2 tCO 2 e for every R $ 1 million in credit operations . Despite the increase in total emissions by 74 % compared to 2021 , mainly due to the considerable growth of our loan portfolio, the average intensity of our emissions decreased by 24 % . This reduction demonstrates the improved climate quality of our credit portfolio and our commitment to sustainability . Sector Financed Emissions (tCO2e) Agriculture, Food and Beverage 28,209.40 Industry 7,239.10 Construction and Furniture 6,006.32 Energy 2,626.37 Mining 1,814.15 Holdings 1,406,32 Transport 959.42 Paper, Pulp and Forestry Products 809.25 Others 13,326.51 Total 64,621 Intensity (tCO2e/R$ MM) 9.23 Score 4.58 As part of our commitment to environmental responsibility, we have implemented the PCAF methodology to calculate our financed emissions score . This methodology assigns a score from 1 to 5 , with a score closer to 1 indicating a more accurate calculation . Due to our loan portfolio consisting mainly of small and medium - sized privately held companies that do not typically disclose their emissions data, we achieved a score of 4 . 58 . While we have improved our score by approximately 0 . 3 points, we recognize the importance of promoting engagement with our customers to encourage them to measure and disclose their emissions . This will allow us to increase our score and improve the accuracy of our calculations . We understand that socio - environmental and climate risks are a significant concern for our institution, and we remain committed to developing better management practices to address these issues . Facilitated Emissions Financed emissions are intrinsically linked to investments and loans recorded on a financial institution's balance sheet, including equities, corporate loans, project financing, real estate credit, and vehicle financing . However, there are transactions that, despite being structured by the financial institution, are not recorded on their balance sheet, such as IPOs, capital market transactions, and derivatives . These transactions result in facilitated emissions, which are not currently accounted for in our calculations . As members of the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF), we are committed to supporting the development of a methodology to calculate facilitated emissions . This will be particularly relevant for XP Inc . , as it should represent a significant portion of our operations . We will work closely with the PCAF to develop and apply this methodology to our operations once it becomes available . We recognize the importance of addressing social, environmental, and climate risks in our operations and are committed to developing best management practices to manage and mitigate these risks. 90
