"I was someone who was keen to support the community in one way or another through the pandemic, but didn’t quite know where to start. When the information came out internally explaining that we could be involved with helping a charity address the challenges they had been presented through the Coronavirus pandemic, I was keen to see if I could add any value.

I registered my interest and received an email with a list of Charities that needed help. I selected a charity and was sent some further information about them and their business needs, alongside an invitation to a 2 hour remote forum.

Team planting trees to help offset carbon

Sustainability manager Lily is helping the Scottish Widows pension scheme make more sustainable investments

"I had my ‘oh crikey’ moment about the urgency of climate action in a pensions team meeting. As a 90s kid, the need to look after people and our planet had made an appearance throughout my education; I can talk about recycling in three languages and have been volunteering in a local charity shop since I moved to Scotland.

When it comes to tackling the climate crisis, at Lloyds Banking Group we understand that each small change we make today can have a positive impact in the future.

That’s why, as part of our own commitment1 to reducing the way we finance carbon by more than 50% by 2030, we’re challenging companies we invest in right now to adopt cleaner, more sustainable business practices.

That’s why, as part of our own commitment1 to reducing the way we finance carbon by more than 50% by 2030, we’re challenging companies we invest in right now to adopt cleaner, more sustainable business practices.

But aside from these pledges, our staff pension schemes are also committed to making our range of pension funds more sustainable, too. Currently, the schemes offer an array of different funds which have integrated environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors – some of which are suitable for our colleagues who want to align their pensions with their social and ethical preferences.

With this in mind, we spoke with Charlotte Gimson, Senior Customer Operations Manager at Lloyds Bank, to find out a little more about her sustainable pension journey.
