Green Pension Pledge
We understand the complexities and difficulties an employer can face in ensuring their company pension scheme is comprehensive, cost effective and most importantly, offers employees access to investment funds aligned to their core values.
Benefits of a green company pension
High impact – low effort
Simply by switching our personal finances to greener and ethical investments, we can have a significant impact on the planet and its people – 21x more impact than any of our other lifestyle choices, in fact.
A number of your employees are probably already making significant changes to their lifestyles to become more sustainable, and as a business, you are also likely making efforts to ensure your day-to-day operations are ethical and responsible too.
Choosing a pension scheme with suitable and varied ethical investment options offers a simpler way for your employees to have a significant impact on the world with their savings. This is also important for your younger staff members driven by sustainable choices, who may not be in a position to invest in private pensions and ISAs at this stage in their careers – a personal or workplace pension will likely be the biggest investment they will hold.
Clear communication of what your pension scheme offers, the benefits of choosing to invest ethically and clear instructions on how to make a fund switch will encourage more of your staff to engage with their future financial independence and impact they have on the world.
Complimenting your existing benefits
You may already have an excellent employee benefit package that offers benefits that fit neatly within the Environmental, Social and Governance sphere – such as a Cycle to Work scheme, childcare and education vouchers, or a Car Benefit Scheme specifically targeting electric vehicles.
Pensions, contribution rates and the type of scheme you offer fall under your employee benefits. You may already be matching your employee pension contributions – a valuable and appreciated gesture to help your employees boost their retirement provision further. Generous pension benefits are one way of increasing recruitment, engagement and staff retention – and by selecting a scheme that accounts for your employees moral and ethical values, you can further highlight your business’s awareness and understanding of the things that matter to your workforce most.

As always with investments, your capital is at risk. The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you invest. This information should not be regarded as financial advice.
