Despite the pandemic, concerns about climate change have not gone away. Significant economic impacts are likely and it’s increasingly clear that pension schemes need to act.
Prompted by evidence that many schemes have not yet done so, DWP is consulting on proposals to make action on climate change mandatory for schemes with assets of £1bn or more. This is expected to drive improved market practices and point the way for smaller schemes.
- David Farrar – Climate governance and ESG lead, Department of Work and Pensions
- Sapna Patel – Responsible Investment consultant, LCP
The session is aimed at trustees of DB and DC pension schemes, of all sizes.
45 minutes (including Q&A)
