Trustees set the tone at the board

As asset owner governing board members, worker and union-nominated pension fund trustees act as fiduciaries for workers’ retirement savings. They have the responsibility to set investment policies and to incorporate ESG issues.

The CWC supports pension fund trustees and strengthens collaboration among national trustee networks to develop a community of practice and to drive sustainability in investments.

Our role in activating trustees

The CWC works with trustee networks in countries across the world to:

  • Convene trustees to hold global asset managers accountable
  • Reinforce national networks of trade union trustees
  • Empower trustees in seeking impact-oriented responsible investment policies
  • Strengthen the voice of trustees in international investment chain initiatives
