For every £10 you put in your pension, £2 is linked to deforestation
We’re calling on the UK pension industry to cut deforestation from our investments. Show your support here
Our deforestation research
Our ground-breaking research – undertaken in partnership with SYSTEMIQ and Global Canopy – shows for the first time the full scale of ties between our pensions and global deforestation.
In fact, this analysis shows that an astonishing £300 billion of UK pension money is invested in companies and financial institutions with a high risk of driving deforestation.
From timber to tobacco, mining to manufacturing, our pensions are propping up the very businesses responsible for chopping down 10 million hectares of forests each year.
For an average pension holder, that means two pounds in every ten of YOUR money is linked to environmental devastation around the world.
As well as harming the planet and the people who live on it, investing in deforestation can harm your pensions, too. So take action today, and cut deforestation from your pension.
£300 billion in UK pensions linked to deforestation
If your pension funds deforestation, then you do too. But you can stop this – make sure your money is helping restore nature, not destroying it.
Sign our petition to cut deforestation from our pensions
There’s £2.7 trillion in UK pensions. But research shows that over £300 billion of this is linked to deforestation. This must stop.
I believe all pensions providers should commit to cutting deforestation from their investments. That way our money can be used to help tackle the climate crisis, not fuel the fire.
An average pension invests £6500 in companies with high risk of deforestation
