Transition Pathway Initiative recognised at Finance for the Future Awards


The Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI), co-founded by the Church of England’s National Investing Bodies and the Environment Agency Pension Fund, has been recognised this week for its work at the Finance for the Future Awards.

The Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment (GRI) at the LSE, was recognised for Driving Change Through Education, Training & Academia for the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI).

These international awards, which are designed to share global best practice as well as create and develop a community of finance leaders committed to drive sustainable outcomes, are set apart from other awards by the expertise of the judging panel and rigorous nature of the assessment process. With considerable competition within the category, this award is excellent recognition of the Grantham Research Institute’s work and its importance to the success of the TPI.

The trophy was collected by Prof. Simon Dietz and Dr Michal Nachmany of the GRI.

Commenting Adam Matthews, Co-Chair of the Transition Pathway Initiative and Director of Ethics and Engagement for the Church of England Pensions Board, said: “The academic rigour underpinning the TPI is fundamental to the initiative’s credibility and relevance to its investor audience.

"We are delighted for Professor Dietz and the team at the Grantham Research Institute. TPI has an absolutely vital role to play in supporting the transition to a low carbon economy and is key to the National Investing Bodies' climate strategy.”
