1. Contact Your Employer
Most people are enrolled in a pension through their workplace. But lots of employers don’t know that having a sustainable pension is so important to their staff. So let’s tell them!
One of the most powerful things you can do is tell your employer you care about where your money is invested. And if your organisation has a strong mission or values, you can demand that your workplace pension aligns with them.
We’ve drafted something you (and your colleagues) can send to your HR department to start the conversation, and tell your workplace you want your pension to build a better world.
2. Contact your pension fund
Your pension fund is, most likely, pretty powerful. Huge providers look after billions and billions of our savings inside thousands of funds. They have the power to really change things. Many of them already offer some funds that are doing better for people and planet, and you can always check those out.
But if you, like us, think that ALL pension funds should be building the type of world that most people want to retire into, then download our sample email and send it to your pension provider to get your voice heard. There is no power like people power, so call on your provider to demand a pension you can be proud of.
