(a) For the periods (each, an “Observation Period”) beginning on the date hereof and continuing for so long as the Investors Beneficially Own (i) any Preferred Units or (ii) at least 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Stock (collectively, the “Equity Threshold Amount”), the Investor Representative, acting on behalf of the Investors, shall, subject to Section 2.2(e), have the right to appoint, by written notice to the Company, two individual representatives to attend (but not record) all meetings of the Board in a non-voting observer capacity and, except as set forth herein, receive all deliverables provided to the Board relating thereto (each representative, a “Board Observer”). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, an individual may not be a Board Observer if such individual is an employee or director of a Company Competitor.
(b) The Company shall give each Board Observer copies of all notices, consents, minutes and other materials, financial or otherwise, which the Company provides to the Board in connection with meetings of the Board to be held during such time frame; provided, that, (i) at least three (3) days prior to furnishing such information to the Board Observer (or if such notice cannot be provided three (3) days in advance, as soon as practicable), the Company shall notify the Board Observer if any material non-public information about the Company is contained therein and the Board Observer may elect, solely in his or her discretion, whether to receive such material non-public information; (ii) if a Board Observer does not, upon the request of the Company, before attending any meetings of the Board or receiving any such materials, execute and deliver to the Company a confidentiality agreement reasonably acceptable to the Company, such Board Observer may be excluded from access to any material or meeting or portion thereof if the Board determines in good faith that such exclusion is reasonably necessary to protect confidential proprietary information of the Company or confidential proprietary information of third parties that the Company is required to hold in confidence, to comply with law, rule or regulation or for other similar reasons; (iii) a Board Observer may be excluded from access to any material or meeting or portion thereof if the Board determines in good faith that (A) such exclusion is reasonably necessary to preserve the attorney-client privilege between the Company or its subsidiaries and counsel, or any privilege under any common interest or joint defense doctrine, or to comply with applicable law, rule or regulation or for other similar reasons, (B) such materials or discussion relates to items in which the Investors, Investor Representative or their Affiliates have a conflict of interest or otherwise relate to any potential transactions between or among the Company or its Affiliates and such Persons, or (C) such exclusion is necessary to avoid disclosure that is restricted by any agreement to which the Company or its Affiliates is a party or otherwise bound; and (iv) nothing herein shall prevent the Board from taking any action by written consent; provided, however, that the Company shall provide written notice to Stonepeak and such Board Observer of (x) any meeting of the Board from which such Board Observer is to be excluded at the same time as notice of such meeting is given to members of the Board, and (y) any action to be taken by written consent of the Board at the same time as the form of such written consent is given to members of the Board. For the avoidance of doubt, the Board Observer shall not constitute a member of the Board, shall not be taken into account or required for purposes of establishing a quorum, and shall not be entitled to vote on, or consent to, any matters presented to the Board.
(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, prior to disclosing any material non-public information to the Board Observer, whether in writing, in a meeting of the Board, or otherwise, to the extent reasonably practicable, the Company shall notify the Board Observer in advance that such information contains material non-public information and the Board Observer may elect, solely in his or her discretion, whether to receive such information.
(d) The Investor Representative, acting on behalf of the Investors, may remove or change either of the individuals serving as the Board Observers for any reason, with or without cause. If for any reason, either of the individuals serving as the Board Observers are removed or otherwise cease to serve as the Board Observer, the Investor Representative, acting on behalf of the Investors, may, by written notice to the Company and in accordance with Section 2.1(a), appoint a replacement Board Observer during any Observation Period. For the avoidance of doubt, the number of Board Observers under this Agreement at any given time shall never exceed two.
Section 2.2 Board Nomination Rights.
(a) For so long as the Investors collectively Beneficially Own at least 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Stock, the Company shall, upon written request by the Investor Representative, take all Necessary Action to (i) increase the size of the Board by one Person, and (ii) subject to the following provisos, cause one member of the Board to consist of the nominee designated in writing by the Investor Representative, acting on behalf of the Investors, hereunder (the “Investor Director”) and to cause such Investor Director to be appointed to one existing committee of the Board designated by the Investor Representative and any committees of the Board established after the date hereof designated by the Investor Representative, subject to the Qualification Requirements (as defined below); provided, that in making such nomination the Investor Representative shall consider, and reasonably cooperate with the Company in satisfying, any diversity requirements applicable to the Board pursuant to applicable law or applicable stock exchange rules; and provided, further, that (i) at any time the Investors collectively Beneficially Own at least 15% of the issued and outstanding Common Stock, the Company shall, upon written request by the Investor Representative, take all Necessary Action to cause the Investor Director to be appointed to two existing committees of the Board designated by the Investor Representative and any committees of the Board established after the date hereof designated by the Investor Representative, subject to the Qualification Requirements (as defined below), and (ii) at any time the Investors collectively Beneficially Own at least 25% of the issued and outstanding Common Stock, the Company shall, upon written request by the Investor Representative, take all Necessary Action to cause the Investor Director to be appointed to any committees of the Board designated by the Investor Representative, subject to the Qualification Requirements (as defined below). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.2(a), the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board (the “Nominating and Governance Committee”) may choose not to nominate or appoint an Investor Director, as the case may be, if the election or appointment of such candidate to the Board or committee of the Board would result in the Company failing to comply with any rule or regulation of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) or any national securities exchange on which the Company’s Common Stock is listed or admitted to trading or any other applicable law, rule or regulation, and if the Nominating and Governance Committee so chooses not to nominate or appoint an Investor Director, then in the case of an election of a candidate to the Board, the Investor Representative may designate in writing a replacement director nominee until an Investor Director that is a suitable candidate, as determined by the Nominating and Governance Committee, is nominated. The Nominating and Governance Committee shall take all Necessary Action to ensure that the Investor Representative is able to designate a member to the Board and to each committee of the Board designated by the Investor Representative pursuant to this Section 2.2(a), subject to the Qualification Requirements. A nominee shall not be eligible to serve as an Investor Director if such nominee (A) does not have the requisite skill and experience to serve as a director of a public company as reasonably determined by the Board in good faith, (B) is prohibited from serving as a director pursuant to any applicable law (including the Exchange Act and the Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914, as amended) or rule or regulation of the Commission or any national securities exchange on which the Company’s Common Stock is listed or admitted to trading, (C) is an employee or director of a Company Competitor, or (D) does not irrevocably agree in writing, in a form reasonably acceptable to both the Investor Representative and the Company, subject to applicable law, to immediately resign from the Board in the event that (1) the Investors collectively cease to Beneficially Own at least 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Stock, or (2) the conditions specified in Section 2.2(c) shall have occurred (the “Qualification Requirement”); provided, that (x) any such determination that such nominee is ineligible to serve as a director pursuant to the foregoing clause (A) may only be made by unanimous approval of the Board (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any Investor Director who is then a member of the Board) and (y) within two (2) business days of any such determination pursuant to the foregoing clause (A), the Company shall notify Stonepeak of such determination in writing and setting forth in reasonable detail the grounds for such determination.
(b) Subject to the other provisions of this Section 2.2, the Investor Director designated by the Investor Representative and elected as a member of the Board shall serve as the Investor Director until the expiration of his or her term of office, and in such case the Investor Representative, acting on behalf of the Investors, may designate a successor Investor Director in accordance with Section 2.2(a) hereof upon prompt written notice to the Company at least 90 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting of the stockholders of the Company; provided, that the Investor Representative must provide the Company with a reasonable opportunity for the Board and the Nominating and Governance Committee thereof to determine compliance with the provisions of Section 2.2(a) hereof.
(c) In the event that the Investor Director fails to satisfy the Qualification Requirement, the Investors agree promptly upon (and in any event within five Business Days following) receipt of a written request from the Company (a “Resignation Notice”), to cause the Investor Director who at any given time is disqualified from serving on the Board pursuant to this Section 2.2(c), to resign from the Board (and any committee thereof) effective immediately or to cause such Investor Director to be removed from the Board in accordance with Section 2.2(d).
(d) In the event of the resignation, death or removal (for cause or otherwise) of any Investor Director from the Board, the Investor Representative, acting on behalf of the Investors, shall have the right but not the obligation, such determination to be made in the sole discretion of the Investor Representative and subject to the other provisions of this Section 2.2, to designate in writing a successor Investor Director to the Board to fill the resulting vacancy on the Board (and any applicable committee thereof), subject to the Qualification Requirement. In the event that the Investor Representative chooses not to designate in writing a director to fill the resulting vacancy on the Board in accordance with the terms and conditions herein, the resulting vacancy shall remain until the Investor Representative designates a successor Investor Director in accordance with this Section 2.2.
(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, at any time an Investor Director is serving on the Board, the number of Board Observers that the Investors may designate pursuant to Section 2.1 hereof shall be reduced from two Board Observers to one Board Observer.
Section 2.3 Governance Obligations. The Investors shall cause each Investor Director to provide to the Company, prior to nomination and appointment and on an on-going basis while serving as a member of the Board, such information and materials, including completed director and officer questionnaires, as the Company routinely receives from other members of the Board or as is required to be disclosed in proxy statements under applicable law, rule or regulation or as is otherwise reasonably requested by the Company from time to time from all members of the Board in connection with the governance, legal, regulatory, auditor or national securities exchange requirements of the Company.
Section 2.4 Reimbursement of Expenses. The Company shall reimburse each Investor Director or Board Observer for all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with such Investor Director’s or Board Observer’s participation in the meetings of the Board and, in the case of the Investor Director, any committee of the Board, including all reasonable and documented travel, lodging and meal expenses, consistent with the Company’s expense reimbursement policies that apply to other non-executive directors serving on the Board.
Section 2.5 D&O Insurance. The Investor Director shall be covered by the Company’s directors and officers indemnity insurance coverage on customary terms consistent with the coverage for other non-executive directors and shall be entitled to any cash or equity compensation and/or indemnification (including by entry into any indemnification agreement) available to and accepted by the other non-executive directors of the Board.
Section 3.1 Termination. This Agreement shall terminate upon the earliest of (a) the date on which the Investors collectively cease to hold the Equity Threshold Amount and (b) written agreement of the parties hereto to terminate this Agreement; provided, however, that the termination of this Agreement shall not relieve any party hereto with respect to any liability for breach of this Agreement prior to such termination.

Section 4.2 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any choice-of-law principles that would require the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Each party hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its properties, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York sitting in New York City in the borough of Manhattan or, if it has or can acquire jurisdiction, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York located therein, as the appropriate, sole and exclusive venue to for purposes of any suit, action or other proceeding under or arising out of, or matter of interpretation of, this Agreement or the rights of the parties under this Agreement. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT IT MAY DO SO UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY SUIT, ACTION, OR OTHER PROCEEDING UNDER OR ARISING OUT OF, OR MATTER OF INTERPRETATION OF, THIS AGREEMENT OR THE RIGHTS OF THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
Section 4.3 Assignment; Entire Agreement; Amendments; Waivers. No party hereto may assign any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other parties hereto; provided, however, that an Investor may assign any of its rights hereunder to any of its Affiliates. Any attempted assignment in violation of this Agreement shall be void ab initio. This Agreement, the other Transaction Documents (as defined in the LLC Agreement), that certain Non-Disclosure Agreement, by and between Stonepeak and Nuvve Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “NDA”), and that certain joinder to the NDA, by and between Stonepeak and Evolve, constitute the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersede all prior understandings, whether written or oral, between the Company and the Investors with respect to the contents hereof. This Agreement may not be amended or modified, in whole or in part, except by a written instrument executed by the Company and the Investor Representative expressly so amending, or modifying this Agreement or any part hereof. Any agreement on the part of any party hereto to any waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed on behalf of such party hereto. No failure or delay on the part of any party hereto in the exercise of any right hereunder shall impair such right or be construed as a waiver of, or acquiescence in, any breach of any agreement herein, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right preclude other or further exercise thereof or of any other right.
Section 4.4 Specific Performance. Each party hereto agrees that irreparable damage would occur if any provision of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with the terms hereof and monetary damages, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy. It is accordingly agreed that each party hereto shall be entitled to seek an injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief to prevent breaches (or threatened breaches) of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof, without the necessity of proving irreparable harm or injury as a result of such breach or threatened breach and without the necessity to post any bond or other security in connection with any such order or injunction, this being in addition to any other remedy to which any party hereto is entitled to at law or in equity.
Section 4.5 Non-Recourse. Each party hereto agrees that this Agreement may only be enforced against, and any action for breach of this Agreement may only be made against, the parties hereto, and no claims of any nature whatsoever arising under or relating to this Agreement shall be asserted against any individual, entity or other person other than the parties hereto, and no individual, entity or other person that is not a party hereto shall have any liability arising out of or relating to this Agreement.
Section 4.6 Parties in Interest.

Section 4.7 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which, when so executed, shall be deemed to be an original and all of which, taken together, shall constitute one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Agreement by e-mail or other electronic transmission (including “.pdf” or “.tif” format) shall be as effective as delivery of an original executed counterpart of this Agreement.
Section 4.8 Severability. If any term, provision, covenant or restriction of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remainder of the terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party hereto. Upon such a determination, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties hereto as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.
Section 4.9 Further Assurances. Each party shall execute, deliver, acknowledge and file such other documents and take such further actions as may be reasonably requested from time to time by the other parties hereto to give effect to and carry out the transactions contemplated herein.
Section 4.10 Liability of Investor Representative.
