Aegon: a lower carbon world by default – sustainable finance in action

With climate change a top priority for organisations and governments around the world, LIBF is bringing together key players in the finance sector to highlight organisations and activities that are making a real difference. Over the next few months, we’ll be releasing films from different organisations to show how they’re playing their part.

Aegon, and the wider finance industry, have a significant role to play in the transition to a lower-carbon world. Default funds, and their journey to net-zero, are a big part of this. This short film tells the story of Aegon UK’s route to net-zero and the importance of industry innovation and collaboration. The film highlights their partnership with @Aegon Asset Management and the @Global Ethical Finance Initiative (GEFI) to introduce the new Aegon Global Sustainable Sovereign Bond Fund during COP26.

The views and opinions expressed in the films are independent and do not necessarily reflect those of The London Institute of Banking & Finance.
