Professional Pensions is holding a webinar on how the pensions industry can make a real impact when it comes to ESG – asking what is better, to engage or to divest.

The webinar - held in partnership with Scottish Widows - will take place on Thursday 26 November at 2pm.

Speakers at the event will include Department for Work and Pensions senior policy adviser David Farrar; Church of England Pensions Board deputy director of ethics and engagement Stephen Barrie; Scottish Widows head of pension investments Maria Nazarova-Doyle; Hymans Robertson senior DC investment consultant Callum Stewart; and ShareAction pensions industry campaign manager Lauren Peacock.

In particular, this webinar will discuss:

•             What is more effective, divestment or engagement?

•             What are the pros and cons of each approach?

•             Where should pension providers draw the line on exclusions?

•             How do you use ESG to provide a stable long-term return for your customers?

•             What are member expectations around what their pension scheme should and shouldn't invest in?

•             Should ESG be mainstreamed in savings or a choice for specialist savers?
