LONDON, (30 November 2017) – Aon plc (NSYE:AON), is asking for the views of pension schemes on environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters and responsible investment via a global survey.
Tim Manuel, principal investment consultant at Aon, said:
“We are looking to gain the best insight into how pension schemes around the world view this wide-ranging issue. Momentum is clearly growing in this area and in the UK we are seeing more and more trustees who are trying to get a better understanding of the longer term ESG-related risks in their schemes’ portfolios.
“The issue was highlighted earlier this year when the Pensions Regulator called on trustees to take ESG factors into account if they believe them to be financially significant, while the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries asked actuaries to consider the impact of climate change in the work they do for clients. There is clearly increasing attention being given to this issue in the UK but the increase is not restricted to here – globally there is a growing awareness.”
The survey comprises 25 mostly multiple choice questions and should take between five and ten minutes to complete.

The survey closes on 31 December 2017.
