    4 Based on impact investments made through Nuveen socially responsible investment vehicles. Nuveen impact investments are in securities of companies whose efforts have reduced greenhouse gases by the equivalent of 98,000 cars. Data sourced directly from publicly available issuer disclosures and aggregated by Nuveen. Outcomes under each theme are not the result of the Nuveen's investments alone. Due to the many challenges of doing so across a diversified portfolio, we do not attempt to attribute impact in proportion to the size of the Nuveen's investment in each security.
