Managing risk in the LGPS

A spotlight on climate risk

20 Dec 2023

Climate change is one of the main sources of risk for pension schemes, with potential implications for future inflation, investment returns and longevity. LGPS funds, with their open-ended timescales and investments in return seeking assets, are arguably more exposed to climate risk than most pension schemes. Understanding the risks posed by climate change within funding is therefore critical.

At the seventh webinar in our risk management series, Greer Flanagan was joined by Peter MacRae and Sanjay Joshi to explore our latest thinking on climate scenarios and what actions funds can take in response to climate risk.

In this publication, we explore:

  • Our current approach to managing climate risk
  • Latest developments in our approach
  • Actions for funds
