Sustainable ownership

The Trustee, on behalf of the Railways Pension Scheme (RPS), has a long history as an active and engaged shareholder, with a strong heritage in corporate governance. One of the Trustee’s core investment beliefs relates to Sustainable Ownership. This states that companies with robust corporate governance structures and engaged shareholders are more likely to achieve superior long-term financial performance and will manage all of their risks and opportunities appropriately, including those related to environmental and social factors.

You can find out more about our approach to Sustainable Ownership on the RPMI Railpen website. This includes information on voting policies, voting records, stewardship codes, carbon footprint records and the Montreal Pledge.
