On December 29, 2020, Hubbell Incorporated (the “Company”) adopted a revised Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the “Code of Conduct”) as part of the Company’s ongoing review of its governing documents and policies. The Code of Conduct applies to all directors, officers, and employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, establishing basic standards of business practice, as well as professional and personal conduct that are expected of all covered persons. The Code of Conduct was revised to update the introductory letter from the Company’s new President and Chief Executive Officer, as well as to make additional updates to reflect current best practices and to strengthen the Code of Conduct. The adoption of a revised Code of Conduct did not relate to or result in any waiver, whether explicit or implicit, of any provision of the existing Code of Conduct.

A copy of the revised Code of Conduct is available on the Company’s website at www.hubbell.com, under the “Governance” tab of the “Investor Relations” menu. The foregoing description of the Code of Conduct is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Code of Conduct, which is incorporated herein by reference. The other contents of the Company’s website are not incorporated by reference in this report.
