ESG Made Simple 2021

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Made Simple

Although ESG is a mainstream issue for pension schemes, there is still a debate over what ESG and ‘responsible investing’ really means, and how it should be integrated into investment decisions and strategies.

This guide, produced in partnership with Aegon Asset Management, explains ESG as an investment concept and shows how it can be integrated into the investment strategy and oversight of pension schemes. It includes a glossary of relevant terms, highlights key ESG-promoting organisations and suggests a template for pension schemes to help them create their own ESG policy.
