PEOPLE, PLANET, PENSIONS
We believe all pension funds should invest for a future their members want to retire into. A future on a viable planet, inhabited by a flourishing society. That’s not the way we’re heading at the moment, and it’s up to government and industry to help drive this transition.
This is why we want to make sure the £3 trillion invested by the UK pensions industry reflects the views of the people that money belongs to. We want our investments to support a fair transition to a zero-carbon world. We want our money invested in creating healthy societies and healthy economies. Most of all, we want it to build a better planet for us all. We want to make our money matter.
WHAT WE’RE ASKING FOR
All pension funds must tell savers how their money is invested, and what that means for people and planet. Pension funds must ask savers what’s important to them about how their money is invested, and explain how they’re taking these views into account
All pension funds must be clear about how they’re taking environmental, social, and governance risks into account – especially climate risk. They must set out real plans to increase the positive impact their investments have for people and planet
By April 2021, all pension funds must set out their plan to halve current emissions by 2030, and achieve net zero emissions by 2050
