I am 25 years old and have been saving for a pension since I started working in 2016. I didn’t think much of it but working to organise pension savers across the UK with ShareAction has really woken me up to power and risks of our savings. Our pensions are invested in the world around us – in the brands we buy, the buildings we work in and the infrastructure we use… basically all the important stuff!

There were two startling announcements from the oil sector last week: Exxon broke ranks with its peers and DNV-GL reported a dramatic shift in industry confidence. Both announcements chimed with some of the messages ShareAction outlined in its earlier piece of research alerting investors to the current choice between improved capital returns or capital investment targeted at growing production in a post Paris Agreement environment where demand growth will peak possibly much sooner than industry expects.

On 29 March 2019 the UK will leave the EU, when the conclusion of the Article 50 process takes effect. It will be an historic change to the legal framework of the UK, the ramifications of which will no doubt fill many column inches before, during and after it takes place.

The last year has been one of empowerment for women across the globe. From the powerful #metoo campaign that saw millions fearlessly stand up against sexual harassment, and the 100th anniversary of votes for Women in the UK, courageously fought for by the Suffragettes, to women activists defending their environment in Guatemala and fighting for freedom of their bodies in El Salvador. Every win for women’s rights and gender equality strengthens the movement, but there are still many battles ahead. This year’s International Women’s Day is all about keeping the momentum going with a call to #PressforProgress.

BP released its 2018 Energy Outlook on Tuesday. While its estimates vary year-on-year, BP’s core message is always the same: oil and gas demand will still be needed in 40 years’ time; global energy demand will continue to grow; electric vehicles (EVs) will not curb oil demand; and renewables will grow, but not quite fast enough to change the world.
