NOTICE OF MOTION - PENSIONS FUND

To consider the following Notice of Motion, which has been submitted by Cllr Jules Crossley pursuant to Standing Order 9 (1):

 

“Ahead of the Hampshire Pension Fund (HPF) report on Responsible Investment, which will be considered by the HPF Panel and Board on 28th July, I would like to propose the following motion for the consideration of this Council.

 

The Council Leader will write to the Chair of the Board of the Hampshire Pension Fund, and request that HPF commits to transition it's entire investment portfolio to net-zero greenhouse emissions by 2030, where practical and financially viable, and completely by 2050 at the latest, to be consistent with a maximum temperature rise of 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by the century's end. The Council also urges the Hampshire Pensions Fund to join the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance, which is the investor alliance doing the most robust work on aligning to 1.5C. Other County Council Pension Funds, such as Wiltshire Pension Fund Committee and South Yorkshire Pensions Authority, are members of this alliance.

 

This Council will also review its investment portfolio with a view to not investing in carbon intensive industries or companies which have NOT committed to 1.5C consistent portfolio alignment guarding the critical 1.5-degree Celsius target and will encourage other organisations in the Borough to do the same.”
