We are affiliated with a number of memberships and initiatives to help further our work.
UN supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)
We signed up to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in May 2010 to help in our endeavours as a responsible investor and to
demonstrate our commitment to our employers and members.
Read our PRI Assessment Report 2016.
We're also a supporter of the UK Stewardship Code. This code was published in 2010 and aims to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and companies. The code sets out good practice on engagement with investee companies.

Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC)
We are active members of the IIGCC which provides investors with a
joint platform to encourage public policies, investment practices and corporate
behaviour that address the long-term risks and opportunities that are associated with
The Carbon Asset Risk (CAR) initiative
We joined the CAR Initiative in June 2014.
The CAR Initiative is a collaborative engagement of around 70 global investors who collectively manage more than $3 trillion of assets.
The group has come together to engage with 45 of the world's top oil and gas, coal and electric power companies climate change poses to their business plans.
