The regulations will require trustees to identify and assess climate related risks, which they consider will have an impact on the scheme's investment strategy, across all time horizons on an ongoing basis. It also requires them to undertake scenario analyses, as well as selection, calculation and reporting of some climate related metrics and targets.
