Large Pension Schemes Emphasize Sustainable Growth

CalSTRS, alongside Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund and the UK’s Universities Superannuation Scheme, released a statement emphasizing the importance of long-term, sustainable growth.

“Our commitments to our members span decades, and we must prioritize long-term value creation over short-term gain,” said Chief Investment Officer Christopher J. Ailman. “We urge our partners and the companies in which we invest to improve their disclosures and enhance their integration of environmental, social and governance factors into their decision-making processes.”
