Campaign urges USS to consult membership over ethical investment

first_imgThe campaign said it was encouraged by the recent UK Law Commission report on fiduciary duties, which suggested pension investors could incorporate ethical investment concerns if it had the backing of its beneficiaries.Tim Colbourn, a faculty member of the University College London’s Institute for Global Health and a USS member, said it was “clearly right” for the trustees of USS to be securing financial returns, which he said was their primary responsibility.However, Colbourn said such an approach need not be at the expense of the membership’s view of ethical considerations.“Short-sighted investment actually overlooks the fact that, in the long term, many ‘ethical’ views may also be financial – for example, there is mounting evidence to suggest fossil fuels are systematically overvalued,” he said.ShareAction’s chief executive Catherine Howarth said USS had initially led the way in responsible investing but fallen short in its efforts since appointing a responsible investment officer in the 1990s.“This could be redressed through undertaking a thorough survey of members’ ethical views, followed by a proper evaluation of whether such views, if acted upon, would cause financial detriment to the fund,” she argued.A spokeswoman for USS said the fund took ESG concerns “very seriously” and had a long history of engaging with companies.“Our approach,” she added, “includes engaging with policymakers to drive change. For example, we regularly meet with civil servants and politicians to help build understanding of the investment considerations of climate change and encourage the development of an appropriate regulatory framework to facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy.”The spokeswoman added that the USS was still evaluating the Law Commission’s report to understand its impact on trustees.,WebsitesWe are not responsible for the content of external sitesLink to Listen to USS campaign site The UK’s largest pension scheme, the £44bn (€55.5bn) Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), should not invest in companies its membership deems “morally unacceptable”, according to a new campaign.The campaign, organised by responsible investment NGO ShareAction and the University and College Union, said the fund’s investments included “a host of firms” that raised ethical concerns for its members, including on matters such as climate change and labour standards.In a statement, the ‘Listen to USS!’ also cited exposure to tobacco companies and weapons manufacturers as matters of concern.A spokeswoman for the fund pointed to its track record of considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters, and noted that it was working with politicians to “help build understanding” of climate change issues.last_img read more

EPL: Aguero double eases City past Brighton

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Manchester City eased past Brighton & Hove Albion with a 4-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. The hosts took the lead through Kevin De Bruyne with just over a minute played as David Silva cut the ball back for him to score a simple goal, and City maintained their dominance throughout the rest of the game. Sergio Aguero then scored either side of half-time – the second a sublime strike – to take the game well and truly away from the visitors. Substitute Bernardo Silva sealed the victory in the 79th minute, slotting home from the left just over a minute after coming off the bench. City got off to a flying start as a slick move that saw Oleksandr Zinchenko slide a ball down the left for David Silva, who evaded his man and got to the byline before squaring to De Bruyne to fire into an empty net and put the hosts up with barely a minute played. Aguero then fired wide from a tight angle and Riyad Mahrez struck an effort too close to Mat Ryan as City continued to dominate, with Graham Potter’s side unsure whether to stick or twist after conceding so early in the game. De Bruyne went very close to a second shortly after as he hit a stinging low drive just wide of the left post from the right before David Silva squandered a brilliant chance to make it 2-0. Raheem Sterling had reached the byline on the left and beat his man with ease as he cut back before squaring for the onrushing David Silva as he reached the six-yard box, but the Spaniard somehow contrived to scuff his shot wide of the far post when it had looked easier to score. Pep Guardiola’s side suffered what could be a significant blow in the title race, however, as Aymeric Laporte had to be stretchered off after sustaining an injury as he fouled Adam Webster – a challenge the Frenchman actually received a yellow card for. Fernandinho made his first appearance of the season, coming on to replace Laporte in an unfamiliar centre-back role but City’s flow was not affected by the loss of their star defender. Their pressure eventually told as Mahrez pulled off a clever backheel for De Bruyne and continued his run to drag defenders away while the Belgian found Aguero in the box, and the Argentine kept his cool, waited for Brighton’s defenders to commit and stuck the ball in the back of the net at the near post. City could have been 3-0 up at the break but Aguero opted not to shoot and squared for Mahrez in the box. There was the suggestion of a foul, but nothing was given and the chance went begging. Aguero made amends and ended the game as a contest with the moment of the match 15 minutes into the second half. He received the ball on the edge of the box from David Silva in a fairly central position and struck a sweet, dipping effort right into the top-right corner of the goal, giving Ryan no chance of saving it. Substitute Bernardo Silva put the icing on the cake, tucking home from the left after the irrepressible Aguero found him in space just moments after he had replaced David Silva in midfield. The win means that City extend their unbeaten run against Brighton at home to 10 matches in all competitions, with six wins in a row.Tags: Brighton & Hove AlbionEtihad Stadiumkevin de bruyneManchester CitySergio Aguerolast_img read more
