Introduction and history
Welcome to our environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment guide for pension scheme trustees. In recent years, 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. As the prominence of ESG increases, from a cultural, legislative and regulatory perspective, it is important that trustees have regard to the impact ESG has on their legal duties when considering investment issues.
