How can sustainable corporations offer sustainable pensions?
Businesses aim to survive and flourish in perpetuity and to be able to do this they need to be resilient and innovate. Today many of them see sustainability as a key driver for growth. These corporations are not just keeping pace with regulation but demanding and anticipating it. They are investing in their employees, managing the environmental and social impacts of their supply chains and designing sustainable products to satisfy an ever increasing consumer appetite for them. Yet most have not yet linked their sustainability strategies with the investment practices of their corporate pension schemes.
The PRI and Univest Company (Unilever Pension Funds) are delighted to invite you to an event for corporate pension plans, which offers the opportunity to meet your peers, share experiences and hear from prominent practitioners about the journey to integrate corporate sustainability views into responsible investment strategies of employee pension funds.
