The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) comments on the Pension’s Policy Institute’s (PPI) Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) research.
Joe Dabrowski, Deputy Director Policy, PLSA, said: “Consideration for ESG factors have become an increasingly important component in pension schemes’ investment strategies and that is why we are delighted to have been part of this important research series conducted by the Pension’s Policy Institute.
“Whilst climate issues have been under sharp focus, this report highlights the importance for trustees of taking an integrated approach across all the factors– and also the many complexities of doing so. As we look to build back better how investors engage with social issues will undoubtedly rise in importance.
“We know this matters to schemes, from our research and toolkit for Understanding the worth of the workforce: A stewardship toolkit for pension funds and A Changing Climate reports, and we look forward to building on the report findings to lead the industries engagement on these issues.”
