Environmental, social and governance issues are key to the board’s investment approach.
Underlying everything the board does is its duty to manage the plan and the fund in the best financial interests of plan beneficiaries. Investment returns play a large part in securing the pensions for current and future members.
Responsible investing is an important part of the plan’s investment approach. The cornerstone of this belief is assessing and managing environmental, social and governance related risks over the long term. This is a fundamental way we meet our mandate to protect and grow the value of the plan’s fund.
Based on ongoing research and experience, we continue to evolve our approach to responsible investing and stewardship generally and climate change specifically.
