There’s more than one route to net zero

As with any journey, there’s more than one possible route, different things to look at and a selection of hot and cold snacks. Our net zero journey is a suggestion of a typical one. Use it to understand what yours might look like, which places you might visit on the way, and what time you’re due to arrive.

We mapped this journey with net zero experts

To develop the journey to net zero, we quizzed experts from across the pensions industry, and we are indebted to them. They helped us explore how the different parts of net zero pensions fit together, what the essential and optional elements are, and why schemes should bother in the first place. And we discussed the critical issue of what to call things – because when everyone uses the same word to refer to the same thing, it becomes much easier to understand. The journey to net zero infographic attempts to unify and simplify the language, so trustees can talk to themselves and their stakeholders clearly, easily, and effectively.
