Pension stewardship and COP26


The UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Council Conference of Parties - COP26 - in Glasgow between 1 and 12 November 2021.

In March 2021, the Minister for Pensions and Financial Inclusion announced that “world leading regulations” will come into force ahead of COP26, following the Government’s consultation, Taking action on climate risk: improving governance and reporting by occupational pension schemes – response and consultation on regulations, which ran from January to March 2021.

Ahead of COP26 the Committee sought views on how the UK Government’s approach to pension scheme stewardship can inform—and should be informed by—approaches taken internationally.
