Industry Voice: RLAM's approach to Net zero engagement

Addressing climate change is one of the most complex challenges we have ever faced [1]. As investors, we all have a role to play achieving net zero, but the path is not simple or straightforward.

This year, as part of the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative (NZAMI): initial target disclosure report, Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) has initially committed 71% [2] of our total assets under management to be managed in line with net zero. To this end, we have established and are applying a net zero engagement framework. As an initial step, by 2030 we are targeting a 50% reduction of tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted per million dollars invested (tCO2e/$mn) from a 2020 baseline.

[1] Our climate targets are based on the expectation that governments and policy-makers will deliver on commitments to achieve the 1.5°C temperature goal
of the Paris Agreement, and that the actions we take do not contravene RLAM's fiduciary duties.

[2] This commitment represents pooled funds owned/controlled by RLAM or segregated mandates with clear net zero signal from clients.
