This is about balancing impact alongside risk and return factors to ensure a holistic view of investing. As we transition to a more sustainable economy the risk of doing nothing and the potential investment opportunities will only grow.
All pension fund investors have social and environmental impacts when they invest, positive or negative, intentional or unintentional.
Negative impacts could include: investing in companies with poor pay practices or that have high carbon emissions . These impacts leave companies exposed to regulatory and market risk.
Positive impacts could include: investing in companies that contribute to the green economy, that have good diversity on their board and/or produce renewable energy. These impacts create opportunities as investors and customers increasingly shift their behaviour towards more sustainable and good governance-led practices.
