mallowstreet Climate Charter

The Climate Charter was created at the mallowstreet Winchester Summit, held from 24th to 26th June, out of a sense among trustees that not enough is being done to combat global warming. The Charter commits individuals rather than pension funds or trustee boards.

This Charter is signed in our personal capacity and is not a reflection of the views or position of any Pension Fund.

We, the undersigned, agree with the UK government that there is a climate emergency. We also know that current actions and responses are insufficient to avoid catastrophic damage to our planet. This climate emergency will have a material financial impact on every Pension Fund and all our futures.

As Chairs, Investment Committee members, Pension Managers and Trustees, we pledge to recommend to our boards and investment committees:

  1. To ask, “What is the impact on the climate?” for each and every investment that is proposed.
  2. To demand that the carbon impact of every investment is measured and reported on by our managers. We will work actively and collaboratively to develop complete carbon measurement standards.
  3. To insist that each of our investment managers actively engage with corporate boards underlying our investments, so that every company develops and discloses both a complete measure of their carbon impact and a clear business plan to transition to a low carbon future.
  4. To review, and ultimately recommend the termination of, any investment manager that fails to support and actively engage in stewarding the transition to a low carbon future.
