Border to Coast Nearly Halves Scope 3 Emissions   

UK pension pool Border to Coast Pensions Partnership’s climate-focused investments in private markets have more than doubled to £1.4 billion (US$1.8 billion), with allocations in climate solutions growing to £8.3 billion in 2023, according to its new Climate Change Report. The report also said that its portfolio’s total carbon intensity is 6-8% lower than last year, with it witnessing a 47% reduction in financed emissions compared to the 2019 baseline and is on target for a 53% drop by 2025. Engagement is also taking place with companies representing 73% of the financed emissions in Border to Coast’s portfolio. Joe McDonnell, Chief Investment Officer, Border to Coast said: “While climate change creates risks to both society and investors, there are also investment opportunities related to the transition to a Net Zero economy. This will require new business models, new companies and new infrastructure, which represent potentially attractive investments.  As long-term investors, we are able to support Partner Funds in providing capital to support this transition.”
