Wespath Joins Archbishop in Low-Carbon Transition Summit

“Church—in partnership with others—can play a leading role in tackling climate change.”
Justin Welby

Wespath joined the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and global sustainable investment leaders for the Transition Pathway Initiative’s (TPI’s) first Asset Owners State of Transition Climate Summit, July 2 in London.

The Summit focused on how organizations and governments can support the transition to a low-carbon economy as a way to impact climate change, and how asset owners can influence this transition through sustainable investment strategies.

In his keynote address at the Summit, the Archbishop of Canterbury noted that the “Church—in partnership with others—can play a leading role in tackling climate change.” (Transcript of his remarks available at wespath.org/archbishop.)

TPI is co-led by the Church of England Pension Fund and the Environment Agency Pension Fund (U.K.). Wespath was a founding member of TPI (launched in January 2017).

Wespath’s participation in TPI and the Summit are in alignment with our investment beliefs, specifically related to a global transition to a low-carbon economy. Read more about our low-carbon transition belief here.
