ESG Conference 2022

Pensions, people, planet

Global emergencies, inequalities and scandals are fuelling the transition to responsible investment. Pensions can be a force for positive change. But how can schemes deliver what’s needed of them on behalf of savers, the economy and the world at large? 

Join us to discuss the outcomes from COP26, what they mean for pensions, and how schemes can implement the recommendations and stay on course for net zero. 

We’ll ask how we can get the ESG message across to savers? Where schemes are with their reporting requirements? And how we can successfully embed ESG into our investment strategies?

We must take action today. For the long-term performance of our pensions and the long-term survival of our planet.

The PLSA’s ESG Conference bring you an online two-day programme with a dynamic mix of keynote speeches, educational sessions, topic deep dives, and quick-fire updates. We cover every angle of ESG for the pensions sector.

This is the place to engage with your peers on the issues that matter most.
