A guide for trustees

27 September 2019

In recent years, environmental, social and governance (ESG) and climate change have become increasingly important issues, both in the UK and globally. With roughly £2.5 trillion in assets, pension schemes are some of the most important players in the investment world.

This guide explains ESG investment for trustees, what’s next in ESG and what trustees need to do.
