When you put money into your pension savings, we invest it in company shares (among other places) with the aim of helping your savings grow.
As well as caring about your financial future we believe that we have a responsibility to consider the impact that these companies have on the world around us. That’s why we consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in our investment process.
Our investment experts within Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) manage your pension contributions as well as those of millions of other savers, meaning that we can influence some of the world’s largest companies. If a company isn’t changing the way they work, we’ll work with them (or ‘engage’) to help them make changes. You’ll see real-life examples of our engagement with companies throughout this site.
We do this because we believe that companies that are managed well, tackle the impact they have on the climate and look after their employees are more sustainable in the long term.
Put simply, looking after our planet and the people on it is the right thing to do.
The value of your pension savings can go down as well as up and is not guaranteed.
Most of the activity described on this site is carried out by Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), a division of Legal & General. LGIM manages your funds and makes the day-to-day investment decisions.
All our funds are managed by professional fund managers but some of the funds available to you are not managed by Legal & General. External fund managers may take a different approach to responsible investing.
Throughout this site, we use companies as examples of the action we take. The issues highlighted are not exclusive to them.
