Climate change
for pension schemes: what actions should trustees take?

Our viewpoint

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. 

Watch our on-demand webinar to learn about DWP’s proposals and actions that trustees can take now. The session is chaired by Claire Jones, our Head of Responsible Investment, and features:

  • 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.
