IIGCC response to DWP consultation on climate and investment reporting
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) issued a consultation on 21 October 2021 to introduce requirements for trustees to report on the alignment of their portfolios by selecting, calculating and reporting a portfolio alignment metric. The proposals seek to align existing TCFD disclosure rules for UK pension scheme trustees with the TCFD’s updated implementation guidance, which includes a recommendation that asset owners describe the extent to which their activities are aligned with a well below 2°C scenario.
In addition, the consultation sought views on draft guidance on the Statement of Investment Principles (SIP) and the Implementation Statement, with a particular focus on stewardship.
IIGCC submitted a response on the consultation to the DWP on 6 January. Download the response below.
