Recent years have seen a greater focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors when investing pension funds. This report was sponsored by Redington and explores:
- The definition of ESG and how it is interpreted by others
- Why organisations decide to invest, or not to invest, using ESG principles;
- The barriers to ESG investing;
- The current legal position of schemes in relation to ESG; and,
- Trustees’ and IGCs’ perceived legal responsibilities.
