Regulatory focus is driving increased pressures on sustainable governance for asset owners

  • October 2020 onwards

    Trustees are required to disclose financial material considerations towards ESG and Climate Change. Implementation statements require information on how trustees acted on the sustainable principles set out in the SIP

  • Pension Schemes Act 2021

    The Pension Schemes Act 2021 introduces new governance and reporting requirements for pension schemes in relation to climate-related issues. The reporting requirements are based on the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations.

  • October 2021

    From 1 October 2021, master trusts and pension schemes with £5bn of assets have a legal duty to report on the financial risks of climate change in their portfolio. Pension schemes with £1bn+ in assets must meet the same requirements from 1 October 2022.

What are the UN Global Compact Principles?
