ESG Incorporation in Internal Equity Investment
The internal equity team has a comprehensive approach to integration of ESG into the investment process, more details of which can be seen in the document linked below.
Lothian Pension Fund has a fiduciary duty to its members and employers, set out in law, to invest for the best returns to ensure pensions can be paid when they are due. This restricts disinvesting from companies for purely non-financial reasons. However, the Fund believes strongly that environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues affect the financial performance of the companies in which it invests. It has a long history of taking these ESG issues seriously and, where appropriate, acting upon them.
