TPR unveils ambitious net zero targets

Ref: PN24-16

Issued: Thursday 28 March 2024

A new report shows how The Pensions Regulator (TPR) will take the lead in addressing the harm caused by climate change.

Our Pathway to Net Zero, published today (Thursday), sets out how TPR is working towards an ambitious net zero target of 2050 for all its emissions.

It also commits TPR to reducing operational emissions in relation to gas, electricity, business travel, water and waste by at least 90% by 2030.

Ceri Thayer, Interim Chief Operating Officer, said: “Our aim is to help the pensions market manage the transition to a net zero economy, and this report shows how we too are cutting carbon emissions.”

Notes for editors

  • TPR has been awarded a gold SKA rating for the sustainability of its new offices at Telecom House, Brighton, East Sussex. The SKA rating, which was awarded by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), is an environmental assessment method, benchmark and standard for non-domestic fit outs. It helps landlords and tenants assess fit-out projects against a set of sustainability good practice measures.
  • TPR is the regulator of workplace trust-based pension schemes in the UK. Our statutory objectives are to:
    • protect members’ benefits 
    • reduce the risk of calls on the Pension Protection Fund
    • promote, and to improve understanding of, the good administration of work-based pension schemes
    • maximise employer compliance with automatic enrolment duties
    • minimise any adverse impact on the sustainable growth of an employer (in relation to the exercise of the regulator’s functions under Part 3 of the Pensions Act 2004 only)
