Russell Investments has pledged to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions for its investment portfolios globally by 2050 at the latest. Net-zero means that investments in any activities that produce greenhouse gas emissions are offset by those activities and processes that remove carbon already in the atmosphere. The move recognises not only the urgency of the climate crisis but also the inherent risk for investors. Russell Investments is currently working on setting 2030 interim targets in addition to collaborating with like-minded peers to establish industry best practice for achieving net-zero carbon emissions. In addition, Russell Investments has committed to making its global business operations carbon neutral by the end of this decade.
