Pension stewardship and COP26

Inquiry

Pension stewardship and COP26

The UK will host the 26 UN Climate Council Conference of Parties COP26 in Glasgow between 1 and 12 November.

 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 is seeking views on how the UK Government’s approach to pension scheme stewardship can inform—and should be informed by—approaches taken internationally.
