Dear Sarah Shoraka,

 

Thank you for your request for information of 3^rd December 2019 which has
been logged as RFI 1999 and has been dealt with under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. We confirm that Cheshire West and Chester Council
holds information relating to your request.

 

For the purpose of clarity your request has been reproduced below, with
responses,

what the Local Government Pension Fund currently invests in, including the
full -name and amounts of each fund, bond, institution and investment
held, by asset class or category, including specific equities; -full

further information listing the fund’s equity holdings as 31 March 2019.

objective the elements you list.

 

However in 2019-20 the Cheshire Pension Fund has invested £525m in the new
LGPS Central Climate Factor Fund, which will invest less in companies with
a high carbon footprint and more with companies focusing on developing
green technology. Further details on the Climate Factor Fund can be found
