Pension Fund Investments

Margo Prebenda • 22 September 2019
Align investments of the UN Joint Staff Pension Fund with the SDGs and Paris Agreement
  1. Decarbonisation: Our Pension Fund should completely divest from fossil fuels;
  2. Full disclosure: Immediate full open access should be provided to the Fund’s investment portfolio (similar to the Government Pension Fund of Norway); 
  3. Proactive investment in the SDGs: The Pension Fund should prioritise investment in environmentally and socially responsible businesses that contribute to the achievement of the SDGs;
  4. SDG Ethics Council: An SDG Ethics Council should be established to oversee all UN Joint Staff Pension Fund investments and screen against negative impact on the SDGs.
