Industry Voice: RLAM's approach to net-zero engagement

Addressing climate change is one of the most complex challenges we have ever faced. As investors, we all have a role to play achieving net zero, but the path is not simple or straightforward.

This year, as part of the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative (NZAMI): initial target disclosure report, Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) has initially committed 71% of our total assets under management to be managed in line with net zero. To this end, we have established and are applying a net zero engagement framework. As an initial step, by 2030 we are targeting a 50% reduction of tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted per million dollars invested (tCO2e/$mn) from a 2020 baseline.

Our objective is to evaluate and or influence through engagement, companies representing 70% of RLAM's corporate financed emissions - this allows us to prioritise and focus our engagement on companies with the largest emissions and where we have an opportunity / responsibility to influence change. We will be seeking companies to adopt emissions reductions targets and climate transition plans linked to science-based and sector-specific methodologies, such as those set by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) or other similar initiatives.
