LPPI and 17 other asset owners responsible for £675 billion of pension assets support companies with a purpose
In a Financial Times article co-authored by a group of UK asset owners, LPPI confirmed we believe that companies with a clear purpose, and which engage with stakeholders, create long-term value.

"We believe that the growing emphasis being placed by companies on sustainability, and the drive to net zero, needs to intensify. Moreover, it is only by honestly engaging with the full range of stakeholders — including consumers, employees and shareholders — that value can be sustained over the long run. To the extent there are difficult decisions and trade-offs, they need to be explicit, open and explained to stakeholders."
