PPI ESG: past, present and future

Recent years have seen a greater focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors when investing pension funds. This report was sponsored by Redington and explores:

- The definition of ESG and how it is interpreted by others;

- Why organisations decide to invest, or not to invest, using ESG principles;

- The barriers to ESG investing;

- The current legal position of schemes in relation to ESG; and,

- Trustees’ and IGCs’ perceived legal responsibilities.

Chapter one explores the definition of ESG and discusses how ESG factors can affect investment risks and sustainability. 

Chapter two considers current, historical and future regulation, legislation, guidance and best practice relating to ESG.

Chapter three explores current trends in use of ESG and barriers to consideration of ESG factors.
