Green Pensions Charter

Together with Count Us In, we’ve created the world’s first Green Pensions Charter which calls for all organisations to match their pensions with their values. Because if your business goes green, your pension should too.

“By helping align the trillions in our pensions with society’s values… this campaign will support the whole economy transition required to achieve net zero”

Mark Carney, UN Envoy on Climate Action and FInance

Why is this important?

There’s £2.6 trillion in our pensions. This money can power a green economic recovery.

With a warming planet and a natural environment under threat, the decisions we make on how our money is invested will impact on future generations for decades to come.

That’s why we’re launching the Green Pensions Charter: to ensure the £2.6 trillion in UK pensions builds a better world.

Many businesses are playing a crucial role in shaping this healthier future. And by committing to green pensions, you can ensure the billions of pounds invested each year through our pensions helps turbocharge this effort.

After all, what’s the point in saving for retirement in a world on fire?

The CHarter

By signing up to this charter, organisations collectively commit to turbocharging the impact of their pensions by:

Calling on the pensions industry to agree net zero targets for all investments by COP26

Engaging with trustees and pension providers to explore how their staff pension scheme can align to net zero before 2050

“Put your money where you want the world to go. It’s as simple and as powerful as that”

Christiana Figueres, Former Executive Secretary UNFCCC
