About this talk

Wiltshire Pension Fund recognise the huge importance of investing in socially and environmentally beneficial assets, with a goal of protecting the investments from climate change risk, and safeguarding the financial future of the Fund. Having recently been surveyed, their members, too, have expressed a desire to see the fund invest in sustainable, low-carbon assets. Acknowledging that the fund will be extant for at least the next one hundred years, their aim is to invest in a financially sustainable way that delivers returns for their members in the long term. With their own net zero carbon by 2050 goal, Wiltshire Pension Fund know that climate change presents the biggest tangible threat to the fund, and a key investment strategy is to help businesses transition to low-carbon futures in order to negate future risks. And from the need to deliver real-World change, opportunities for investment also present themselves. Whether it’s a solar farm or a carbon-neutral greenhouse, it’s the fund’s firm belief that investing in positive environmental assets can be done in conjunction with achieving positive financial return. Wiltshire Pension Fund wants their members to feel proud that their contributions are helping to deliver positive change for future generations and for the planet.
