Taking action on ESG and climate change
Transforming tomorrow: Rising to the new normal of ESG and Climate change factors and risks
ESG is the acronym of our time. Embracing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) concerns within investment portfolios has never been higher on the agenda. Asset owners and investment managers are increasingly integrating ESG factors into their financial analysis and investment decision making.
To understand the current state of play among UK pension schemes, CACEIS partnered with the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) to ask PLSA members representing pension schemes of all shapes and sizes about their attitudes towards ESG, climate change and more broadly, with a view to charting current thinking and how pension schemes are looking to the future in relation to their governance considerations on ESG and climate change.
The survey also aimed to understand the areas which participants believe will be the most pertinent for pension schemes in the future and the fields where trustees may need further support or training.
