In conversation with Richard Curtis

On 8 December, we hosted a live webcast for BTPS members to find out more about our commitment to net zero and responsible investment.

We were joined by co-founder of Make My Money Matter, film writer and director, Richard Curtis, who is raising awareness of the 'hidden superpower of pensions' in tackling climate change and 'building a world fit for retirement'.

Responsible for some of the nation's best loved films including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Love Actually, Richard joined BTPSM’s CEO Morten Nilsson and Head of Sustainable Investment, Victoria Barron, to talk about his call for people and organisations to 'make their pensions green'.

As one of the UK’s largest corporate pension schemes, we are acutely aware that how and where we invest matters, and this is a responsibility we have always taken very seriously. In October 2020, BTPS set an ambitious goal to be net zero by 2035 and Victoria talked members through the steps BTPS is taking towards this goal, and our progress so far.

Joining live from Los Angeles, Richard took questions from BTPS members – both about his views on what we can all do in our own lives to combat climate change and about his ‘day job’ in the world of movie making.
