climate change: An action plan for pension scheme sponsors


The financial consequences of the climate crisis are already being felt and, if unchecked, its future impact will dwarf anything experienced to date. Action on climate change can no longer be delayed.

Members’ investments and future financial wellbeing are at risk. The scale and complexity of the issue means that a tick-box exercise will not suffice. The good news now is that there is a range of practical steps available to help address the risks – and opportunities – generated by climate change.

Here, we pull together some key steps for companies to:

  • understand climate-related risks and opportunities and assess their financial materiality;
  • engage with scheme trustees to help manage these risks and opportunities appropriately;
  • and demonstrate to scheme members, the regulator and others that you and the trustees are taking the meaningful action required.
