Professional Pensions' Stephanie Baxter and Jonathan Stapleton receive the ShareAction accolade

Professional Pensions has won the ShareAction award for best coverage of responsible investment issues.

The accolade was presented at a reception in London's Brick Lane yesterday evening.

ShareAction is an organisation that campaigns on responsible investment issues.

It grew out of a campaign by People & Planet that helped Britain's largest single pension scheme adopt a responsible investment policy and made its name ranking big UK pension funds on responsible investment.

Its current campaigns include embedding climate risk awareness in the investment industry, encouraging companies to transition to 100% renewable electricity, and using the law to put pressure on pension funds that aren't taking climate change seriously.
