Biodiversity to be a Responsible Investment Priority for Brunel

The Brunel Pension Partnership, which manages £35 billion for 10 UK local government pension schemes, is to prioritise biodiversity within its responsible investment mandate. According to its 2022 Responsible Investment & Stewardship Outcomes report, this means Brunel will proactively identify nature- and climate-positive solutions, ask managers to evidence their approach and develop its own mechanisms to evidence impact. The report also highlights biodiversity-related expectations for managers and investee companies. “Investors and corporations must recognise that accounting for biodiversity-related impacts is critical and, with a final framework coming down the line in 2023, companies must start preparing for the impending reality of nature-related disclosure,” said Laura Chappell, Chief Investment Officer, Brunel Pension Partnership.
