Nearly 90% of public pension savings exposed to global warming despite UN warning
Nearly 90% of public pension savings exposed to global warming despite UN warning
Asset Owners Disclosure Project
23 Oct 2018 United Kingdom Investment - Ethical and SRI, Investment - General, Investment - Management
According to research conducted by the Asset Owners Disclosure Project, only 13% of savings collectively managed by the world's 100 largest public pension funds have undergone formal assessment for exposure to climate-related risks. It is estimated that this leaves £7.5trn of savings unprotected from the economic risks associated with climate change and vulnerable to potential losses in the long term. The research also found that only 10% of the largest public pension funds have made formal pledges to align their priorities with the goals of the Paris Agreement, and that 85% of funds have no formal policy for excluding thermal coal.

Sep 2018 United Kingdom Administration, Investment - General, Investment - Management
