(As Amended and Restated Effective as of January 1, 2022)

WHEREAS, the Company previously established the Ecolab Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan (the “Plan”) to provide additional retirement benefits in consideration of services performed and to be performed by certain participants for the Company and certain related corporations; and

WHEREAS, the Plan was amended and restated in its entirety, effective as of January 1, 2014, and

(a)The effective date of this amended and restated Plan is January 1, 2014.
(b)The benefit, if any, payable with respect to a former Executive who Retired or died prior to January 1, 2022 (and who is not rehired by a member of the Controlled Group thereafter) shall be determined by, and paid in accordance with, the terms and provisions of the Plan as in effect prior to January 1, 2022, subject to Sections 1.4 and 3.3(b)(iii). Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, an Executive’s SERP Benefit (which was temporarily frozen from December 31, 2004 through December 31, 2008) shall be retroactively adjusted on January 1, 2009 to reflect the benefit that would have been accrued by the Executive under the Plan, in accordance with Section 3.2, during the period commencing on January 1, 2005 and ending on the earlier of December 31, 2008 or the date on which the Executive terminated his services with the Employers as an employee.
Section 1.2 Purpose of the Plan. The purpose of this Plan is to provide additional retirement benefits for certain management and highly compensated employees of the Company who perform management and professional functions for the Company and certain related entities.
Section 1.3 Administrative Document. This Plan includes the Ecolab Inc. Administrative Document for Non-Qualified Benefit Plans (the “Administrative Document”), which is incorporated herein by reference.


Section 1.4 Section 409A.
(a)To the extent applicable, it is intended that the Plan (including all Amendments thereto) comply with the provisions of Code Section 409A, so as to prevent the inclusion in gross income of any amount of SERP Benefit accrued hereunder in a taxable year that is prior to the taxable year or years in which such amounts would otherwise be actually distributed or made available to the Executives. The Plan shall be administered in a manner that will comply with Code Section 409A, including regulations or any other guidance issued by the Secretary of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service with respect thereto (the “409A Guidance”). All Plan provisions shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the 409A Guidance.
(b)The Administrator shall not take any action hereunder that would violate any provision of Code Section 409A. The Administrator is authorized to adopt rules or regulations deemed necessary or appropriate in connection with the 409A Guidance to anticipate and/or comply with the requirements thereof (including any transition or grandfather rules thereunder).
(c)Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan, any Grandfathered SERP Benefits (including any Pre-Retirement SERP Benefits attributable thereto) shall continue to be governed by the law applicable to nonqualified deferred compensation prior to the addition of Section 409A to the Code and shall be subject to the terms and conditions specified in the Plan as in effect prior to January 1, 2005, except as otherwise provided herein. Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, neither the Company nor the Administrator guarantee to any Executive or Death Beneficiary any specific tax consequences of participation in or entitlement to or receipt of benefits from, the Plan, and each Executive or the Executive’s Death Beneficiary shall be solely responsible for payment of any taxes or penalties incurred in connection with his participation in the Plan.

(b)Non-Grandfathered SERP Benefit. A Death Beneficiary who is eligible for a SERP Pre-Retirement Benefit hereunder shall receive the portion of such SERP Pre-Retirement Benefit that is based on the Executive’s vested Non-Grandfathered SERP Benefit as follows.
(i)If an Executive (i) is not married on the date of his death, (ii) has been married for less than one year prior to his death and designates a Death Beneficiary other than his spouse, or (iii) has been married for at least one year prior to his death and the Executive’s spouse consents to the Executive’s designation of a Death Beneficiary other than the spouse, the Executive’s Death Beneficiary shall receive his benefit in an amount Actuarially Equivalent to the survivor benefit determined as if the Executive had Separated from Service on the earlier of the date of his actual Separation from Service or the date of his death, elected to receive his Non-Grandfathered SERP Benefit in the form of a monthly life annuity with (A) a five (5)-year certain survivor benefit if the Executive had Separated from Service before attaining age 55, or (B) a ten (10)-year certain survivor benefit, if the Executive had attained age 55 while an Employee, had survived to age 55 and had died immediately following his payment commencement date. The Non-Grandfathered SERP Pre-Retirement Benefit shall be paid in the form of an Actuarially Equivalent single lump sum payment on the first day of the third (3rd) month after the

- 13 -


later of the date on which the Executive would have attained age 55 or the date of the Executive’s death.
(ii)If an Executive who dies after becoming vested in his SERP Benefit is married on the date of his death and paragraph (a) does not apply to him, then the Executive’s surviving spouse shall receive the SERP Pre-Retirement Benefit as follows:
(1)If the Executive had Separated from Service before attaining age 55, the Executive’s spouse shall receive a reduced annuity payable monthly to the Executive’s spouse during his life, commencing on the first day of the third (3rd) month following the later of the date on which the Executive would have attained age 55 or the date of the Executive’s death and ending on the date of the Executive’s spouse’s death, calculated as if the Executive had Separated from Service on the earlier of the date of the Executive’s death or actual Separation from Service, elected a joint and fifty percent (50%) survivor annuity form of payment described in Section 3.4(b)(ii)(2), survived to age 55 and died on the date following the payment commencement date.
(2)If the Executive had attained age 55 while an Employee, the Executive’s spouse shall receive a reduced annuity payable monthly to the Executive’s spouse during his life, commencing on the first (1st) day of the of the third (3rd) month after the date of the Executive’s death, calculated as if the Executive had died immediately after commencing payments in the form of an immediate joint and one hundred percent (100%) survivor annuity form of payment described in Section 3.4(b)(ii)(2).
(iii)Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) if the SERP Pre-Retirement Benefit under this Subsection (b) is payable to a Cash-Balance Participant, such benefit will be distributed to the Executive’s Death Beneficiary in the form of an Actuarially Equivalent single lump sum ninety (90) days after the Executive’s death, and (ii) if the present value of the SERP Pre-Retirement Benefit under this Subsection (b) payable to any Executive not described in (i) does not exceed $25,000, such benefit will be distributed to the Executive’s Death Beneficiary in the form of an Actuarially Equivalent single lump sum on the first day of the third month following the later of the date on which the Executive would have attained age 55 of the date of the Executive’s death.

(i)Notwithstanding the provisions of Subsection (a) hereof, but subject to the requirements of paragraph (ii) of this Subsection, the Employers shall be relieved of any obligation to pay or provide any future SERP Benefits or SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits under this Plan and shall be entitled to recover amounts already distributed if, without the written consent of the Company, the Executive, whether before or after termination with the Controlled Group (i) participates in dishonesty, fraud, misrepresentation, embezzlement or deliberate injury or attempted injury, in each case related to the Company or a Controlled Group member, (ii) commits any unlawful or criminal activity of a serious nature, (iii) commits any intentional and deliberate breach of a duty or duties that, individually or in the aggregate, are material in relation to the Executive’s overall duties or (iv) materially breaches any confidentiality or noncompete agreement entered into with the Company or a Controlled Group member. The Employers shall have the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that one of the foregoing events has occurred.
(ii)Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Executive shall not forfeit any portion of his SERP Benefits or SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits under paragraph (a) of this Subsection unless (i) the Executive receives reasonable notice in writing setting forth the grounds for the forfeiture, (ii) if requested by the Executive, the Executive (and/or the Executive’s counsel or other representative) is granted a hearing before the full Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) and (iii) a majority of the members of the full Board determine that the Executive violated one or more of the provisions of paragraph (a) of this Subsection.
(c)Acceleration of Vesting. Notwithstanding the provisions of Subsection (a) hereof, the SERP Benefits of the Executives (a) who are employed by the Controlled Group on the date of a Change in Control or (b) whose employment with the Company was terminated prior to a Change in Control but the Executive reasonably demonstrates that the termination occurred at the request of a third party who has taken steps reasonably calculated to effect the Change in

- 15 -


Control, shall become immediately one hundred percent (100%) vested upon the occurrence of such Change in Control.
(d)Vesting Service After December 31, 2020.

Article VI​
MISCELLANEOUS
Section 6.1 Effect of Amendment and Termination. The Plan may be amended or terminated at any time in accordance with the Administrative Document. Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan (including the Administrative Document) to the contrary, no amendment or termination of the Plan shall, without the consent of the Executive (or, in the case of his death, his Death Beneficiary), reduce the vested SERP Benefit or vested SERP Pre-Retirement Benefit under the Plan of any Executive or Death Beneficiary as such Benefit exists on the date of such amendment or termination; provided, however, that this limitation shall not apply to the extent deemed necessary by the Company to comply with the requirements of the 409A Guidance.
Section 6.2 Protective Provisions. Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, if an Executive commits suicide during the two-year period beginning on the date of his commencement of participation in the Plan or makes any material misstatement or nondisclosure of medical history, then, in the Administrator’s sole and absolute discretion, no SERP Benefits or SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits shall be payable hereunder or such Benefits may be paid in a reduced amount (as determined by the Administrator).
Section 6.3 Limitation on Payments and Benefits. Notwithstanding any provision of this Plan to the contrary, if any amount or benefit to be paid or provided under this Plan or any other plan or agreement between the Executive and a Controlled Group member would be an “Excess Parachute Payment,” within the meaning of Code Section 280G, or any successor provision thereto, but for the application of this sentence, then the payments and benefits to be paid or provided under this Plan shall be reduced to the minimum extent necessary (but in no event to less than zero) so that no portion of any such payment or benefit, as so reduced, constitutes an Excess Parachute Payment; provided, however, that the foregoing reduction shall be made only if and to the extent that such reduction would result in an increase in the aggregate payment and benefits to be provided to the Executive, determined on an after-tax basis (taking into account the excise tax imposed pursuant to Code Section 4999, or any successor provision thereto, any tax imposed by any comparable provision of state law, and any applicable federal, state and local income taxes). If requested by the Executive or the Company, the determination of whether any reduction in such payments or benefits to be provided under this Plan or otherwise is required

- 16 -


pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be made by the Company’s independent accountants, at the expense of the Company, and the determination of the Company’s independent accountants shall be final and binding on all persons. The fact that the Executive’s right to payments or benefits may be reduced by reason of the limitations contained in this Section 6.3 shall not of itself limit or otherwise affect any other rights of the Executive pursuant to this Plan. The Executive’s benefit will be reduced only to the extent that the reduction in any cash payments due to the Executive is insufficient to reduce or eliminate Excess Parachute Payment as described in this Section. The Executive’s Non-Grandfathered SERP Benefit (if any) shall be reduced if required by this section before any Grandfathered SERP Benefit is reduced.
Section 6.4 Establishment of Trust Fund.
(a)In General. The Plan is intended to be an unfunded, non-qualified retirement plan. However, the Company may enter into a trust agreement with a trustee to establish a trust fund (the “Trust Fund”) and to transfer assets thereto (or cause assets to be transferred thereto), subject to the claims of the creditors of the Employers, pursuant to which some or all of the SERP Benefits and SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits shall be paid. Payments from the Trust Fund shall discharge the Employers’ obligation to make payments under the Plan to the extent that Trust Fund assets are used to satisfy such obligations.
(b)Upon a Change in Control.
(i)Within thirty (30) business days of the occurrence of a Change in Control, to the extent it has not already done so, the Company shall be required to establish an irrevocable Trust Fund for the purpose of paying SERP Benefits and SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits. Except as described in the following sentence, all contributions to the Trust Fund shall be irrevocable and the Company shall not have the right to direct the trustee to return to the Employers, or divert to others, any of the assets of the Trust Fund until after satisfaction of all liabilities to all of the Executives and their Death Beneficiaries under the Plan. Any assets deposited in the Trust Fund shall be subject to the claims of the creditors of the Employers and any excess assets remaining in the Trust Fund after satisfaction of all liabilities shall revert to the Company.
(ii)In addition to the requirements described in paragraph (a) above, the Trust Fund which becomes effective on the Change in Control shall be subject to the following additional requirements:
(1)the trustee of the Trust Fund shall be a third party corporate or institutional trustee;
(2)the Trust Fund shall satisfy the requirements of a grantor trust under the Code; and
(3)the Trust Fund shall automatically terminate (A) in the event that it is determined by a final decision of the United States Department of Labor (or, if an appeal is taken therefrom, by a court of

- 17 -


competent jurisdiction) that by reason of the creation of, and a transfer of assets to, the Trust, the Trust is considered “funded” for purposes of Title I of ERISA or (B) in the event that it is determined by a final decision of the Internal Revenue Service (or, if an appeal is taken therefrom, by a court of competent jurisdiction) that (I) a transfer of assets to the Trust is considered a transfer of property for purposes of Code Section 83 or any successor provision thereto, or (II) pursuant to Code Section 451 or 409A or any successor provision thereto, amounts are includable as compensation in the gross income of a Trust Fund beneficiary in a taxable year that is prior to the taxable year or years in which such amounts would otherwise be actually distributed or made available to such beneficiary by the trustee. Upon such a termination of the Trust, all of the assets in the Trust Fund attributable to the accrued SERP Benefits and SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits shall be immediately distributed to the Executives in proportion to the present value of their vested SERP Benefits and the remaining assets, if any, shall revert to the Company; provided, however, that distributions to the Executives will be made only to the extent and in the manner permitted by the 409A Guidance.
(iii)Within five (5) days following establishment of the Trust Fund, the Company shall transfer (or cause the Employers to transfer) to the trustee of such Trust Fund an amount equal to the equivalent actuarial present value of the SERP Benefits and SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits which have been accrued as of the date of the Change in Control on behalf of all of the Executives under the Plan (using the Actuarial Factors specified in Exhibit A for this purpose).
(iv)In January of each year following a funding of the Trust Fund pursuant to paragraph (iii) above, the Company shall cause to be deposited in the Trust Fund such additional amount (if any) by which the aggregate equivalent actuarial present value (determined using the Actuarial Factors specified in Exhibit A) of the sum of the SERP Benefits and SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits for all Executives under the Plan as of December 31 of the preceding year exceeds the fair market value of the assets of the Trust Fund as of such date.
(v)Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Employer shall not be required to make any contributions to the Trust Fund if the Employer is insolvent at the time such contribution is required.
(vi)The Administrator shall notify the trustee of the amount of SERP Pension Benefits and SERP Pre-Retirement Benefits to be paid to or on behalf of the Executive from the Trust Fund and shall assist the trustee in making distribution thereof in accordance with the terms of the Plan.

- 18 -


(vii)To the extent any benefits are paid directly by an Employer, the obligation of the Trust to pay such benefits shall be discharged and the Employer may be reimbursed from the assets of the Trust.
(viii)Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan or the Administrative Document to the contrary, the provisions of this Section 6.4(b) hereof (i) may not be amended following a Change in Control and (ii) prior to a Change in Control may only be amended (A) with the written consent of each of the Executives or (B) if the effective date of such Amendment is at least two (2) years following the date the Executives were given written notice of the adoption of such amendment; provided, however, that this limitation shall not apply to any amendment that is deemed necessary or reasonable (as determined in the sole discretion of the Committee) to comply with the requirements of the 409A Guidance.
Section 6.5 Delay of Payments Subject to Code Section 162(m). The Company may delay the distribution of any amount otherwise required to be distributed under the Plan if, and to the extent that, the Company reasonably anticipates that the Company’s deduction with respect to such distribution otherwise would be limited or eliminated by application of Code Section 162(m). In such event, (1) if any payment is delayed during any year on account of Code Section 162(m), then all payments that could be delayed on account of Code Section 162(m) during such year must also be delayed; (2) such delayed payments must be paid either (i) in the first year in which the Company reasonably anticipates the payment to be deductible, or (ii) the period beginning on the date of the Executive’s Separation from Service and ending on the later of the end of the Executive’s year of separation or the fifteenth (15th) day of the third (3rd) month after such separation; and (3) if payment is delayed to the date of Separation from Service with respect to an Executive who is a Specified Employee, such payment shall commence after such Executive’s Separation from Service on the date immediately following the six (6)-month anniversary of the Separation from Service, or if earlier, on the date of the Executive’s death. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 6.5 shall no longer apply effective December 31, 2020 to the extent this Section 6.5 is inconsistent with any proposed or final regulations issued under Code Section 162(m) or Code Section 409A and on which regulations the Company may reasonably rely as of the date of any potential application of this Section 6.5.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Ecolab Inc. has executed this Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan and has caused its corporate seal to be affixed this 16th day of December, 2021.

EXHIBIT B
PRIMARY SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS

(A)For purposes of the Plan, an Executive’s monthly primary social security benefit is the estimated social security benefit amount, under the Old Age and Survivors Insurance Benefit Act of the United States in effect on the first day of the calendar year during which the Executive terminates employment, which the Executive is receiving, or would be entitled to receive, commencing at his attainment of age 65, whether or not he applies for, or actually receives, such benefits.

(B)The amounts determined under section (A) hereof shall be based upon the following assumptions:

(1)except as otherwise provided in Subsection (5) hereof, the Executive is assumed to have participated in social security starting at the later of age 22 or January 1, 1951;
(2)except as otherwise provided in Subsection (5) hereof, the Executive’s compensation on which his social security benefit is based shall be assumed to be that resulting from applying a decrease for years prior to the mid-year of the years on which the Executive’s Final Average Compensation is based, and an increase for years following such mid-year, at the same rates as the national average total wages for adjusting earnings as used in computing social security benefits, as published by the Social Security Administration for each such year, with the rate for the last published year being used for any years subsequent to such last published year;
(3)except as otherwise provided in Subsection (5) hereof, the taxable wage base, the factors for indexing wages, and the table or formula used to determine the estimated monthly primary social security benefit amount will be assumed to remain constant following the Executive’s termination of employment;

B-1


(C)an Executive who, for any reason, is not a participant in the United States social security benefit program shall be deemed to participate fully in such program for purposes of determining the Executive’s primary social security benefit.

EXHIBIT C
