We believe that collaborative initiatives are important to address the sustainability-related challenges in investment markets, economies, society and the environment.

We believe that collaborative initiatives are important to address the sustainability-related challenges in investment markets, economies, society and the environment. We are proud to have deep pockets of knowledge on these topics across our organisation. We use those skills to collaborate with other groups with the aim of improving long-term outcomes for our clients.

We are signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the UK Stewardship Code, and public supporters of major industry initiatives including the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Other highlights of our recent work in this area includes:

  • Ongoing work by the Thinking Ahead Institute, a not-for-profit think tank sponsored by Willis Towers Watson, to effect positive change for the industry as a whole.
  • Willis Towers Watson’s ‘1-in-100 Initiative’: Successfully working with the G20 Financial Stability Board, Bank of England, US Treasury, IAIS and other authorities to propel reform on the disclosure of near-term climate and natural disaster related risks by financial institutions
  • Having a seat on the leadership group of the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance
  • Being founding members of the Diversity Project, an investment industry initiative to attract and retain diverse talent in the industry.
  • Sponsoring the Global Assessment Report (GAR) co-ordinated by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) which is the first globally consistent and comparable risk assessment tool for a wide range of perils.
