Sustainability

Retirement savings are powerful – if invested wisely, they can grow as well as help with major global issues

Use your pension to help tackle the climate crisis

Did you know that a green pension can cut carbon 21x more than giving up flying, going vegetarian and switching energy provider (source: Make My Money Matter)?

Hear from ten savers as they discover just how powerful their pension is and how surprised they are to learn where their pension savings are invested.

Our pension is sustainable

1. Over 70% of our default growth fund is invested in a sustainable way

Most pension schemes have an aim to invest in sustainable funds in the future. At Smart Pension, it’s something that we’re already doing. 

2. Net Zero by 2040, and a 50% reduction in emissions by 2025

Our default growth fund will be net zero by 2040, without carbon offsetting. This is ten years earlier than 2050, which is when most pension providers are committing to be net zero.

3. Our investment approach helps local communities

We invest to make a difference at a local level, through things like education, clinical research and renewable energy.

4. One of the first carbon-zero office buildings in central London

We moved into new offices, known as ‘The Smart Building’, in 2022. They are operationally carbon-zero, powered entirely by electricity from renewable sources.
