Climate change is the challenge that will define this generation. Temperatures are on track to rise by more than 3 degrees by 2100 if immediate action is not taken to curb global carbon emissions.
RLAM has embraced responsible investing for many years. In 2020, we expanded our ESG integration practices and now integrate these across all our asset classes.
We engage with companies to make them better investments for clients, and to effect change on the issues that matter most – including climate change.
Our Net Zero targets
RLAM has committed to:
- Achieving Net Zero across our investment portfolios by 2050
- Reducing carbon emissions from our investment portfolios by 50% by 2030
- Developing solutions that enable clients and customers to invest in the low carbon transition
“We are proud to support and be a signatory to many positive climate initiatives, including the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change Net Zero commitment, aimed at achieving net zero by 2050 across our investments to meet the goal of the Paris Agreements.
We are focused on demonstrating our progress with key milestones along the way. By 2030, we will reduce carbon emissions from our investment portfolio by 50% while also developing solutions that enable our customers to invest in the low carbon transition.”
– Barry O’Dwyer, Group CEO, Royal London
