The recent government pledge to be neutral by 2050 has not only set the already accelerating focus on ESG, but also triggered many other aspects as we begin to build a post-covid world. New regulatory requirements, such as the Statement for Investment Principles, make genuine ESG initiatives a matter of necessity rather than a tick box exercise. But how can trustees make sure they are not investing in 'greenwash'? Beyond the investment side of things, schemes need to find more effective ways of engaging with members on ESG related matters. Members may also have specific requests that can often contradict one another based on personal preference. How do trustees ensure members are catered to?
A wave of new rules are also coming into force which are forcing scheme managers to up their game on ESG investing. A Financial Times journalist will host a special session looking at how schemes are adapting to recent legislative changes on ESG reporting, and the challenges and issues they face in meeting new requirements. We will look at the experience overseas to see where the ESG may further develop.
The FT, Pensions Expert and an expert panel of speakers will delve further into these issues in a virtual event which will include an update on new regulatory requirements and how to comply, troubleshooting problems in ESG investing and how to build on its success to engage with members.
