Through our pension schemes we own almost a fifth of British companies. This gives pension schemes
enormous influence over company behaviour on environmental and social issues.
Companies have a huge impact on people and the environment: their attitude to climate change, child labour,
or arms sales can affect the lives of millions. Despite this, few pension schemes ever raise such issues
with the companies they own.
In less than one minute, you can petition your pension scheme to become a responsible investor, showing
your pension scheme that their members want them to be environmentally, socially and financially responsible.
Seen another way, this is about you taking responsibility for the way your capital is being used to shape
the world you - and future generations - live in.
Your pension fund invests your money on your behalf, so it's your right to express your concerns to them.
Our past campaign successes prove that contacting
your pension fund can change corporate behaviour. The more people who speak out, the more likely it is
that action will be taken. Do you want to be the person whose voice tipped the scales?

friends, relatives or colleagues and invite them to do the same! There's
power in numbers.
