Sustainable Ownership


Sustainable Ownership is Railpen’s approach to incorporating sustainability considerations into the investments we manage on behalf of our beneficiaries.

We are guided by the Trustee’s related investment belief: Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors materially impact long-term investment returns and must be taken into account.

We incorporate sustainability considerations into the investments we manage on behalf of our beneficiaries focusing on these areas :

  • Integration
  • Active Ownership
  • Longer-term risks and opportunities

.Integration


Our goal is to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into the portfolios we manage on behalf of our beneficiaries.

.Active ownership


Thoughtful voting alongside constructive engagement with portfolio companies supports our objective of enhancing long-term investment returns for our beneficiaries. We also work with policymakers and regulators to create an environment which supports positive corporate behavior in members’ interests.

Longer-term risks and opportunities


As long-term investors, we monitor risks and opportunities over the timeframe we will be paying members’ pensions.
