Responsible Investment

Providing best-in-class, cost-efficient investments for Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution pension schemes through our responsible investment framework.

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. 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 for 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 most recent Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) report as well as our Carbon Footprinting Analysis for 2019, at the links below:

Net zero emissions by 2050

TPT is a member of the Paris Aligned Asset Owners Group. Alongside other major global asset owners with collective assets totalling $1.9tn, TPT has committed to achieving a net zero emission portfolio - helping to drive the transition to a low carbon economy - by 2050.

We believe that climate change represents a risk to the long-term value of our investment portfolio, and has the potential to reduce the security of our members’ retirement benefits. By continuing to allocate capital to sustainable businesses, in line with our investment objectives, we reduce this risk while also supporting the expansion of climate solutions.

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.
