04 May 2021

The Pension Schemes Act 2021 received Royal Assent on the 11 February. It sets the scene for the continuing focus of UK Pension Schemes on, in particular, the "E" in "ESG". Regulations made under the PSA 2021 are expected later this year which will require trustees to consider in detail how climate change will affect their scheme and investments. There will also be new obligations to publish information in line with the Task Force on Climate-related Disclosures (or TCFD) recommendations. With guest speakers Rona Train and William Chan from Hymans Robertson this webinar will help trustees understand their obligations under the PSA 2021 to assess and manage the risks and opportunities associated with climate change, and how ESG could be a real opportunity to increase member engagement.
