Annual Stakeholder & Awards Event
21 November 2023, 11:30-17:30 GMT, London, followed by drinks reception till 19:00.


Challenging, thought-provoking and inclusive, this is our annual must-attend, in-person event, which provides a mini-version of everything Pensions for Purpose does.

This year’s theme is impact integration – not just in investment solutions but in our philosophy and allocations, as well as the way we operate as businesses.

You will hear from all the companies involved in the pension fund investment chain and find out new and innovative answers to the world’s environmental and social issues.

The format will include presentations, case studies, panel discussions, audience polling and Q&As to encourage our attendees to participate, challenge and give insights on their experiences.

We are delighted to announce the shortlisted articles from our members, across the six award categories:

  • Best Strategy.
  • Best Impact Report.
  • Best Climate Action.
  • Best Biodiversity Impact.
  • Best Place-Based Impact.
  • Best Social Impact.

The first round of judging was conducted by members of the Pensions for Purpose staff team: Charlotte O’Leary, Karen Shackleton, Stephanie Windsor, Martin Pattinson, David Brown, Amanda Evans, Stephen Darlington, Francis Farrell, Laura Gould, Rachel Lewis and Juan David Perez. The submissions were assessed for originality, educational insight, presentation and relevance for pension funds. For impact categories we were looking for evidence of positive and intentional impact rather than ESG.

The shortlisted content has now been sent to our judges to review who will use the same criteria for assessment but the judging will be from their personal perspective. 

Join us in London on 21 November to find out who the winners are!
