Supporting a sustainable future can mean looking after your savings as well as the planet

At Standard Life, we’re focusing on helping you towards a better financial future. As part of that, we’re working towards a more sustainable way of investing while looking after your savings.

Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs; as defined by the United Nations.

We want to tell you about how your investments are considering the impact of climate change

Climate change is the long-term shift in temperatures and weather patterns. How you’re investing could have either a positive or negative affect on tackling the climate crisis.

The report shows climate information for our With Profit and Unit Linked Funds:

Moving to a low-carbon economy could have an impact on your savings and help drive a more sustainable future

As we move to a low-carbon economy, some companies could face significant financial challenges. This can happen through a number of ways. It could be a lack of demand for their products or a lack of support from investors. It might be failure to adapt to regulatory change or changes in the decisions people make when they’re buying products or their actions when they use them.

On the other hand, there may be opportunities for growth in new markets from companies coming up with solutions to sustainable issues and challenges.

As part of Phoenix Group, Standard Life is taking action to invest in the future we all want. We've set clear targets to help fight climate change, and to drive a wider more positive impact on our sector and economy.

If there is no data presented for the fund you are invested in; this can either be because the fund does not hold any in scope assets (e.g. cash and property are out of scope), or they are invested via an external manager and we are still working closely with them to get the data. In the latter instance please contact the external manager for their fund climate report by visiting their homepage using the following links.
