Regulatory Report on Payments to Governments in respect of Logging Industries for the Year 2019

The report of payments to governments made by Mondi plc and its subsidiary undertakings for the year ended 31 December 2019 has been published in
accordance with the UK’s Reports on Payments to Governments Regulations 2014 (as amended in December 2015). This regulation implements the two EU
Directives in the UK, mandating annual reports by companies in the extractives and logging industries of their payments to governments in countries in which
they operate.

Basis of preparation

The application of the Regulation for Mondi relates to our logging activities and specifically to the disclosure of payments to governments relating to the
logging of primary forests.

We have used the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations definition of ‘primary forest’ being:

‘Naturally regenerated forest of native tree species, where there are no clearly visible indications of human activities and the ecological processes are not
significantly disturbed’.

Also, for the purposes of this report, the original ‘IFL 2000’ (Greenpeace, World Resources Institute (WRI) and Transparent World) inventory of intact forests
has been used as the base for reporting on the harvesting of primary forests in the Komi Republic, Russia (‘Komi’).

Only a portion of our Syktyvkar logging operations in Komi fall within the above definition of primary forests. Our operations in South Africa comprise plantation
forests that are not associated with any primary forests and therefore are excluded from the report.

Our logging operations in Komi do not result in deforestation. In terms of the Russian Forestry Code and Mondi’s sustainable development policies all logged
areas are regenerated, either naturally or via planting where required, including tending and protection of the young forest stands for the next sustainable
forest cycle. During logging operations protected areas, High Conservation Value (HCV) areas and sensitive biotopes, comprising approximately 24% of the
area, are set aside for conservation.

Exchange rate
Payments made in currencies other than the euro (Mondi Group’s reporting currency) are translated for this report using the average exchange rate during the
financial year to which it relates.
