Net Zero Pension Summit at COP26
About this event
Global Ethical Finance Initiative (GEFI) is committed to making the finance sector work for COP26, and COP26 work for finance. Our dedicated Net Zero Pension workstream within our broader Path to COP Campaign is a direct call to pension providers to increase emissions transparency and develop a tangible strategy to set and / or deliver on net zero commitments.
The challenge of achieving net zero presents a complex range of issues for pension providers and financial institutions alike. With COP26 coming to Glasgow in November 2021, financial institutions are coming under increasing pressure to commit to net zero targets. Pension providers must therefore accelerate action towards meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Following the digital launch of the Net Zero Policy Positioning Paper in September 2021, and in anticipation of our Net Zero Transition Roadmap launch (late October), this Summit, held in partnership with Abrdn, will explore the urgent action required by pension providers and ensure they play a key role in addressing the existential threat of climate change.
The Summit will showcase best practice and provide practical guidance for pension providers to ensure that the pensions we pay are worth more in a world worth living in.
