The aim

Newton is delighted to sponsor this report, which is published by the Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) as part of its ‘Engaging with ESG’ research series.

We have long believed in the value of connecting research, policy and investment practice, and we share the PPI’s strong commitment to improving retirement outcomes. The PPI’s independent analysis and evidence-based output provide valuable contributions to our collective understanding of the issues facing pension schemes, and are an important catalyst for seeking to address those issues successfully.

Key findings

  • The PPI’s research identifies five key areas where further progress should help support pension schemes in addressing ESG-related issues:

    • The building of a consensus among stakeholders about ESG-focused goals
    • Engagement and stewardship
    • Innovation in products and data provision
    • Increasing knowledge and understanding
    • Standardised data and definitions
  • 65%
    Feel their scheme is doing enough in terms of ESG issues.

    Say their main motivation when considering ESG in their investment approach is financial.
