Path Climate Solutions Portfolio: a UK first

Some very exciting news – ahead of COP26 starting this week, we’ve launched our new Climate Solutions portfolio.

We’d already gone beyond ethical investing and ESG with our impact investment offer, but this new portfolio goes even further. 

Created specifically for customers looking to tackle the climate emergency with their pensions and investments, money invested in the Path Climate Solutions Portfolio is not just aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it’s focused on tackling climate change. 

We believe this new portfolio to be a first for the UK, and the future of UK pensions and investments if we are going to reach Net Zero goals. If the UK is serious about being fossil free by 2035, there has to be systemic change in the way our current financial model operates. 

The biggest difference you can make for the planet and future generations is moving your money, but people are being hoodwinked into thinking their savings and investments are doing no harm – just look at the latest Global Witness research about how much financial institutions have been making from deals with firms linked to deforestation.

COP26 might be a conference aimed at country-level commitments, but at Path, we believe in the power of individual action. The climate crisis is everyone’s problem. As Greta Thunberg would say, world leaders will be doing their ‘blah, blah, blah,’ their focus only on setting targets into the future. But individuals can take meaningful action today and show them the way.

Of course, all of this should go hand in hand with other lifestyle and behaviour changes, like switching from a gas boiler or going veggie. What we’re offering with our new portfolio isn’t the only solution.  It does, however, feel like a significant development in our sector and an important step forward, particularly during COP26.

The Path Climate Solutions portfolio is the optimal choice for helping to tackle the climate crisis. It’s not just green, but deep green. It’s the best climate solutions tilt to a portfolio, whilst also offering the prospect of superior investment returns.
