UK: BBC and BT named as having most responsible pension schemes

Date: 27 Jan 2014

BT headquarters

A new league table looking at socially responsible practices amongst workplace pension schemes has named the BBC and BT for having the most active approach to looking at the social and environmental impact of their investments. On the flip side, Rolls Royce and GlaxoSmithKline were shamed as laggards in this area.

The figures were produced by ShareAction, formerly FairPensions, a member organisation that includes some of the UK's biggest unions as well as campaign groups such as Greenpeace and Oxfam.

It said that the bottom five companies, which also included Barclays, Tata Steel and BAE Systems, had not actively contributed information to the survey, but they did not provide any publicly available documentation about their policy on responsible investment.
