Lunch and Learn: Investing better – why where you bank matters

Across the world, businesses are ramping up their efforts to cut their carbon emissions.

But despite these steps – new research from Make My Money Matter shows they’re missing out on one crucial, yet unreported action – greening their company pensions.

We’re delighted to have Tony Burdon, CEO of Make My Money Matter show us the importance of your company pension and your corporate bank, and what you as companies, and as individuals, can do to ensure your financial footprint reduces your carbon footprint. Make My Money Matter leads a public campaign to ensure the finance in our pensions and banks tackle the climate emergency and not cause it.

For those businesses on their climate journey, this is particularly relevant when looking at your scope 3 emissions but is relevant to everyone interested in investing sustainably and responsibly.
