BT pension scheme targets net zero carbon emissions by 2035

LONDON, Oct 8 (Reuters) - The BT Pension Scheme, Britain’s largest corporate pension scheme, said on Thursday it aimed to achieve net zero carbon emissions across its investment portfolio by 2035.

The 55 billion pounds ($71.08 billion) scheme, which invests on behalf of 300,000 current and former members of telecoms company BT Group, said the move aligns it with the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
