Four categories of award were presented to pension funds:
The winners were:
Impact Investing Adopter Award
South Yorkshire Pensions Authority
Judges’ feedback - “This was the best submission in my view. The adoption of a clear net-zero target is ambitious but impressive. There is a clear focus on particular SDGs. The engagement strategy is work in progress as is their impact measurement approach, but the timelines look good.”
Social Impact Award
Judges' feedback - "The winner of this award has demonstrated the most complete integration of social impact with:
Paris Alignment Award – Best Climate Change Member Communication
TfL Pension Fund
Judges' feedback - "The judges were impressed by the engaging case studies on where the fund invested. There was excellent context on fiduciary duty and work to date, given regulatory changes. There was a substantial section on engagement in relation to climate and a good summary of the net-zero commitment."
Paris Alignment Award – Best Climate Governance and Strategy Statement
Brunel Pension Partnership
Judges’ feedback - “Good articulation of the reason to act, what Brunel are doing and the objectives for each activity. Framed as a high-level policy allowing implementation to adapt as data and metrics evolve and accompanied by a robust annual reporting framework.”
