Nest Corporation is the trustee for the UK’s biggest pension fund by members, National Employment Savings Trust (NEST). This pension scheme was created as part of the UK government’s automatic enrolment reforms for workplace pensions.

This case study outlines the investment decisions and processes that NEST has taken and continues to take to ensure that it will meet its net zero emissions by 2050 commitment. It provides examples of actions that can be taken as well as some ‘top tips’ from NEST for fellow trustees.

This practical example is part of an ESG Toolkit for Pension Chairs and Trustees that A4S has created to support trustees identify the practical steps to embedding environmental, social and governance considerations into their investment decisions, reporting, and engagement across the investment chain.
