Pension funds targeted in public campaign

Moving a pension to a more sustainable fund is 27 times more effective in reducing your carbon footprint than not flying and becoming a vegan combined, according to the newly launched Make My Money Matter (MMMM) Campaign.

MMMM wants the public to shift the £3tr held by UK pension points into sustainable investments, and consider the ‘financial footprint’ of their investments.

launched by screenwriter, producer and director, Richard Curtis (pictured), he said, “people are in the mood to change their own behaviours in order to change the world,” as he cited the movement of around £70bn of assets into ethical funds and £200bn leaving “unethical things" during the COVID-19 crisis.

The campaign already has a number of industry and charity partners, including PensionBee, Quietroom, BNP Paribas, Comic Relief, ShareAction and WWF.
