Survey Launched to Shed Light on Responsible Investment Policies of UK Corporate Pension Funds

UKSIF3rd February 2009

UKSIF has today launched the 2009 “Responsible Business: Sustainable Pension” survey looking at the Responsible Investment policies of UK Corporate Pension Funds. Pension funds are being invited to participate based on their plan sponsor’s reputation as a Corporate Responsibility leader.

Sponsored by leading investment managers Hermes Fund Managers and KBC Asset Management, this is the second bi-annual survey of the pension funds of companies highly regarded for their Corporate Responsibility. The survey was developed by independent pension fund industry leaders to give an RI framework specifically tailored to the needs of this group.

The inaugural survey in 2007 found that nearly two thirds of funds gave “great” or “some” significance to alignment with their plan sponsor’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and/or Sustainability policy. The 2009 results will be published later in the year.
