Make a positive impact on the world without sacrificing pension pot growth by selecting our ethical, green pension option.
We believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters can have a huge impact on the future of our planet. Our Sustainable plan is the best way to make a positive impact on the world without sacrificing investment returns.
The plan uses a mix of ESG screening and enhancing as well as a focus on socially responsible investing. It invests a larger percentage in companies with the highest ESG rating compared to peers and removes any investments that underperform.
The Sustainable plan has one simple all-in fee. You'll only pay an annual fee of 0.75% for savings under £100,000, or 0.4% for any amount over £100,000.

ESG stands for Environment and Social Governance and is used by investors to refer to a set of standards and governance used by corporations that shape their strategies for managing their impact on the world.
ESG is often confused with sustainability or green issues, but it encompasses a broader set of factors, including how a business interacts with its employees, customers, and local communities.
Companies focusing on ESG issues have reduced costs, improved worker productivity, lowered risk potential, and demonstrated greater revenue-generating opportunities. In short, a strong ESG rating is good for business performance and, therefore, attractive to the investor community.
BlackRock has three ways of improving the sustainability of the portfolio, these are:
