Responsible investment

Responsible investment is commonly defined as an approach which seeks to integrate environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations into investment management processes and ownership practices[1]. Given the long-term horizon of its investment strategy (and the increased likelihood that these factors play out over longer time periods, TPT is committed to managing the risks and opportunities that these trends present across all markets and asset classes. 

As a signatory of the Principles of Responsible Investment, we have a responsible investment approach built into the way we work and how we select our investment managers.



Climate change

Climate change has the potential to affect many of the sectors and companies we invest in. Our Climate Change Policy helps us to ensure that climate change risk is explicitly considered during the investment process, from understanding how exposed our portfolio is to the risks, to the way we actively engage with the wider investment community on climate change. We are also an active member of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change.

You can read our Climate Change Policy and more about our approach to responsible investment in our Responsible Investment Policy and our 2017 Report.

Investing ethically

We also believe that members and employers should be able to reflect their ethical beliefs in their investment decisions, and so have an ethical option for both our Defined Contribution and our Defined Benefit schemes.
