The world’s first deforestation guidance for pension funds

This interactive How to guide provides a practical pathway for pension funds to eliminate deforestation, conversion, and associated human rights abuses from their portfolios.

How to tackle deforestation, conversion, and associated human rights abuses in your portfolio: a How to guide for pension funds

Global Canopy, Make My Money Matter (MMMM), and SYSTEMIQ have created a guide, How to achieve deforestation-free pensions. It details how pension schemes can integrate deforestation-free requirements into agreements with asset managers, as well as how to work with asset managers on the need to engage with companies/investments. It also provides guidance on how pension funds, which directly finance companies/investments can identify, assess, and eliminate deforestation, conversion, and associated human rights abuses from their portfolios.

The guide was informed and shaped by a working group of 12 pension funds, including Cushon, Environment Agency Pension Fund, London CIV, Nest, Phoenix Group, Scottish Widows, and Smart Pension.


Interactive guidance This guide has been designed to be used interactively, enabling you to see only the relevant guidance and save your place in the guidance for when you return.

To use this guide, you have to create a log-in. Once you’ve created your account, you need to edit your profile to select which key criteria relate to your pension fund (e.g. whether or not you have trustees, or if you manage your own assets or use an asset manager). This will then enable you to access the guidance that is most relevant to you and your pension fund.

When logged in, you can access How to achieve deforestation-free pensions via your dashboard. Login and see your dashboard at any time by clicking the button in the menu.

You can then start the six Phases, from identifying where deforestation risks can be found in portfolios to implementation and engaging to ensure funds are deforestation-free. Sign up now to access How to achieve deforestation-free pensions

Bringing existing guidance together This guide unites existing guidance – in particular the best practice for companies operating in forest-risk commodity supply chains as defined by the Accountability Framework initiative – and recommended datasets and tools in one place. It highlights at which point in the process each piece of guidance and data is most relevant. Read this introduction as a PDF.
