Pension funds must treat climate change as both a risk and an opportunity to ensure the future savings of millions of people are protected. Our environmental lawyers are making sure they do just that.
Pressure grows on pension schemes as ClientEarth publishes two reports which demonstrate that the evidence on financial risk is fast stacking up.
In a first of its kind case, a pension fund member in Australia has taken their fund to court over a lack of information on what it knows about the impact of climate change on his investments and what it is doing about it.
PLSA calls for climate change risk to be omitted from trustees’ duties but too many are still worryingly under-informed about climate risk.
The UK government has recommended pensions law require providers to consider climate risk in core investment decision-making, in what would be a breakthrough for the financial system.
UK financial regulators are under pressure to issue much-needed guidance on climate risk reporting.
ClientEarth’s Company and Financial Project brings legal interventions designed to integrate climate-related financial risks into corporate and financial decision making.
Here, you can access our regulatory referrals, investor briefings, and publications on the legal duties of company directors, pension fund trustees, investment advisers, asset managers, auditors, and other financial actors, to report on and manage the material financial risks associated with climate change
