Managing the risks and opportunities related to climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy is essential to earning adequate investment returns and paying pensions in the long term. We seek to embed sound practices and work collaboratively with external investment managers and partners to manage climate-related risks and opportunities and to improve industry practices over time. These efforts can lead to better long-term investment performance.
The Climate Transition Investment Framework (the “Framework”) was created to support our ability to manage the impacts of climate-related risks on fund performance and capitalize on opportunities for long-term value creation. The Framework achieves some of the commitments outlined in UPP’s Climate Action Plan, which describes our goal to support emissions reductions in the real economy and transition our investment portfolio to net-zero greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions by 2040 or sooner.
This plan sets out the steps UPP will take in 2023-2025 to realize the stewardship commitments of our Climate Action Plan and address the risks associated with climate change.
