I believe all pension 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.
Cut Deforestation From Our Pensions
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.
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.
The research shows that 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.
