Net zero stewardship programme

20 min read

Royal London Asset Management recognises the science of climate change and the impact it can have on financial outcomes for our clients if not managed appropriately.

We have been engaging on climate for several years but following our net zero commitment in 2021 and joining the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative (NZAMI), we have further enhanced our engagement approach to help achieve our climate goals. 

At the heart of our approach to climate change is our commitment to achieving net zero by 2050 and reducing emissions in our investments1 by 50% by 2030 for our in-scope assets, using 2020 as the baseline year.

Our objective is to evaluate and/or influence through engagement issuers representing 70% of our financed emissions, pushing for adoption of emissions reduction targets linked to science-based sector specific alignment methodologies (such as SBTi, the Science-Based Targets initiative) and climate transition plans.
