Climate Takes Spotlight at Brunel

UK-based asset owner Brunel Pension Partnership has published its latest responsible investment and stewardship outcomes report, evidencing a further focus on climate. Brunel’s work is structured around seven priorities: biodiversity and nature, circular economy and supply chain management, climate change, cyber, diversity, equity and inclusion, human rights and social issues, and tax and cost, transparency and fairness. Last year, Brunel voted at 99.8% of meetings, engaged with 805 companies, and undertook 121 public policy interactions. Engagements included dialogue with more than 600+ companies specifically on climate, and Brunel has committed nearly £1 billion in capital to sustainable infrastructure. The pension partnership has also driven new work on alignment between asset owners and managers on climate stewardship. Next month, it will also share a climate progress report, demonstrating how that measured up against the 2023-2030 policy targets it set last year. “The many examples in this report highlight our continued commitment to work in partnership with our managers and peers to raise the bar on impactful stewardship,” said Vaishnavi Ravishankar, Head of Stewardship at Brunel. “Stewardship by nature isn’t high-profile. It occurs during regular meetings and through diligence of approach, and it is great to have this annual opportunity to demonstrate the impacts it had in 2023.”
