We have a decade to prevent catastrophic climate change so Legal & General’s journey to net zero is our most critical commitment.
As a global organisation working over generations and decades, rather than just years and months, we can use our scale to embed long lasting reform. Our active stewardship is already changing the environmental behaviour of hundreds of other corporations. As a responsible business we are also building our own journey to net zero.
We intend to be on the right side of climate history.
Responsibility is the cornerstone of building strong, trusting and lasting relationships with millions of customers from one person with an L&G annuity to a corporation whose employees save into a workplace pension we operate. Responsibility means that we design our products and services to support our journey to net zero and embody our vision of ‘inclusive capitalism’. Responsible behaviour inside the organisation begins with our employees and their behaviours, their satisfaction at working for us, their ambitions and their wellbeing. We want to ensure that our people embrace diversity and inclusion and embody the business principles which our Board establishes.
