Consultation Responses

ShareAction Response to the Taskforce on Social Factors Consultation


ShareAction welcomes the efforts made to address, and raise awareness of, social factors within investment decision-making. The inclusion of social considerations is critical for economic growth and protection from risks related to the climate crisis, as well as to ensure a higher standard of social protections across domestic and international supply chains. While the recommendations included in the Taskforce’s report are a positive development, ShareAction would like to see environmental and social considerations incorporated into investment decision-making in a more robust manner by pension scheme trustees, industry, and policy makers.
