ESG and Climate Change Seminar

ESG and Climate Change have been a hot topic for pension schemes in recent years and their profile has been further accelerated by the current crisis. We know that ESG is of great interest to a large number of our members and this seminar is an opportunity for the PMI to cover an important topic outside of our normal event schedule.

The insight and knowledge shared by our top ESG speakers will highlight the latest developments in this topical and fast-moving area and we look forward to creating a platform for in-depth and constructive discussions.

What are the risks, opportunities and impacts of the transition to net zero? What will things like changing consumer preferences, extreme weather events, environmental damage, political instability, and large-scale migration do to market values and flows of capital?

We will explore systemic risks (climate change, inequality and biodiversity loss) and the potential impacts for investors as these risks begin to materialise.

Things do not happen, they are made to happen (John F Kennedy)

Brian Henderson
Brian Henderson
Mercer
Director of Consulting

The recent CBI/ Mercer Pension Survey 2021 found that while businesses aspire to better incorporate ESG into pension scheme management, the pace of action is slow. This perhaps isn’t surprising when you consider how complex and fast moving this area of pensions is. So, if trustees and sponsors are expected to take action, they need three things:

  • To understand how their scheme is doing today
  • To know what to do to best improve that position
  • A way to measure and show the progress they are making.

In this session, you’ll be among the first to see some of the findings from our analysis of over 400 DB and DC schemes. You’ll find out where schemes are already getting it right, where work needs to be done and what actions are being taken to pick up the pace and take control of the ESG agenda today.
