A big thank you to everyone who joined us and XR at the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Annual Conference at the Manchester Conference Centre on 18 October.

XR Manchester brought their amazing elephant to remind delegates about the elephant in the room that was being ignored at the conference.

Many delegates stopped to talk and we had some interesting / challenging conversations.

Our message may not have been welcomed by all, but the pensions industry know they are under the spotlight and ignoring their role in the climate crisis is not going unchallenged.
