Information and support to help give your employees the freedom to invest responsibly

ESG investing means investing money as responsibly as possible in every sense of the word. It looks at environmental and social sustainability and makes sure companies have governance in place to improve that sustainability year on year. Now, consideration of ESG issues is increasingly a mainstream part of investing and one that’s set to grow further as people wake up to the importance of looking after our planet better.

By you choosing a scheme that has a strong ESG investment strategy as a default, or giving your employees the option to invest their pension contributions into ESG or ethical funds, you and your employees can help put pressure on companies to continually improve their position. And taking steps to make the world a better place to live is good for all of us and future generations.

Here you’ll find information and support to help give your employees the freedom to invest responsibly.
