The potential impact of new Government regulations and policies on LGPS investment processes may have a far-reaching effect on the officers and committee members at local government pension funds and pools.

As the LGPS evolves it is more important than ever to ensure, and be capable of demonstrating, that responsible investment decision-making and reporting processes are robust. So, how can the industry ensure that investment committees have taken due care of those requirements when setting out their investment strategies?

Topics to cover include:
• Climate regulation and the LGPS
• Impact investment – what can we do to make a difference
• RI A-Z for the LGPS
• RI initiatives in the LGPS
• RI post-Covid – an industry view
• Setting and delivering Responsible Investment
