Fiduciary management update

Spotlight on climate change
This autumn bears witness to several landmark climate change events. At the beginning of October new Climate Change Governance and Reporting Regulations came into effect for certain pension schemes. Whilst November sees the UK host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). With this in mind, climate change is in the spotlight in our latest fiduciary management webinar.
