We had an interesting and informative meeting on Jan 16th and the plan is that we should meet again during the early summer. These are the agreed actions:
1 Review the presentation of risks of ethical investments in newsletters and on the website
2 Send examples of the survey questions used when seeking members’ views to Ethics for USS along with draft future questions for comment
3. USS to consider how views on responsible investing from deferred and retired members could be heard.
4. Organise a meeting between Ethics for USS, Simon Pilcher, Chief Executive of Investment Management and Naomi Clark, Head of Investment Product Management on how plans for investment strategy are developing in relation to the Climate Emergency
5. Consider appearing at a discussion about responsible investing with a wider group of USS members.
Ethics for USS will:
1 Discuss with ShareAction the proposed meeting in 5 above
2 Comment on survey questions sent to them and respond to other requests from USS on the presentation of information on the website
