In May 2021, we announced both long and short-term pledges for decarbonising our investment portfolio, through which Prudential can play our part in the transition to a global low-carbon economy and the collective efforts to limit the rise in global warming. Our long-term pledge is to become ‘net zero’ by 2050.

We announced immediate actions to help deliver on this ambitious longer-term objective.

We are making good progress towards these:

We are a responsible steward in managing the human impact of climate change.

Prudential remains committed to proactively play our part in enabling the transition to a low-carbon economy. We do this by decarbonising our investment portfolio and own operations, and by working towards sustainable development and energy transition in all our markets through collaborative and collective engagement.

As we support the move to low-carbon economies in these emerging markets, we strive to ensure that the transition is a just and inclusive one for all of society: a transition that supports sustainable growth and economic health within our local markets and communities.

Decarbonising our investment portfolio

As a significant asset manager and asset owner in regions forecast to be severely impacted by climate change, Prudential has a distinctive role to play in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Recognising this, in May 2021 we set a target to be net zero by 2050 for our insurance assets, supported by a 25 per cent reduction in emissions from our investment portfolio by 2025. By the end of 2021, we had reduced the weighted average carbon intensity (WACI) of our investment portfolio by 23 per cent against our 2019 baseline, placing us on track to achieve the 25 per cent target by 2025. 

Supporting an inclusive transition

As a steward of long-term capital, we seek to use our scale and expertise to drive decarbonisation at pace, and to do so in a way which is just and fully inclusive. This means that we are continuously mindful of the need to implement our decarbonisation strategy in a way that acknowledges the nature of the markets in which we operate, and seeks to share the financial and social burden of the transition in a fair manner, promoting sustainable development for all stakeholders. As part of the Sustainable Development Investment Partnership, we are a signatory to the Principles for Financing a Just and Urgent Energy Transition.

Managing our direct impact on the environment

We seek to actively reduce our direct impact on the environment in line with our purpose of improving the lives of our customers and their communities. To understand our impact, we measure our environmental performance and take action to improve our performance. We have set a target to become carbon neutral across our Scope 1 and 2 (market-based) emissions by the end of 2030. We aim to deliver a 25 per cent reduction per full time employee (FTE) in our operational emissions from a 2016 baseline, then abating the remaining emissions via carbon offsetting initiatives. We are ahead of the emissions reduction trajectory required to meet our 2030 target.
