Climate change poses a systemic risk to nearly all businesses and all sectors. It will impact the value of scheme investments and, ultimately, that of individuals' retirement savings.
2020 has brought continued regulatory and policy change for both private and public sector schemes. The PLSA continues to guide members through the maze and shine a light on how best to take climate risk and opportunity into account in their investment decisions.
We have a library of practical support for our members on climate change and ESG issues, including guidance on trustee duties, help on incorporating ESG into your scheme's investments and guidance and templates for Implementation Statements.
And we're providing thought leadership on the way forward. After speaking to more than 80 delegates, representing some 60 funds directly and many hundred more indirectly, in a series of virtual roundtables in ummer 2020, we've identified some key recommendations to overcome the many tricky obstacles that prevent pension funds investing for a carbon-constrained future.
This is the defining issue of our age and we're always happy to hear our members' views. Drop us a line at [email protected] and use #PLSAInvestForGood.
