Dear Shropshire Council,

I would like to receive this information in an unlocked excel sheet without protected cells (.xls). If you have to password protect the excel sheet, please can you also provide the password to the excel sheet.

2) Please provide any Local Government Pension Fund or Council policy or strategy statements, meeting minutes, investment principles, or Investment Strategy Statements that commit to reducing investments in fossil fuel producers or to decarbonise the Fund

Dear Mr Noyes

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 11/08/2020.  We are
currently processing your request in accordance with the relevant
legislation.

 

Your request is for information about pension fund assets.

* This is a summary only and full details have been sent to the team
providing the response.
* If you feel the information is inaccurate or requires amendment,
please notify us as soon as possible using the contact details
provided below. 

 
Please note:
 
The Council has been facing unprecedented challenges this year. Firstly,
in response to the flooding in February and now in responding to the
coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. During this time, resources may have to
be diverted away from usual compliance or information rights work. The
council acknowledges that it can’t extend statutory timescales of requests
and everyone is doing their best to meet these. However, priority may have
to be given to other areas, eg the safeguarding of vulnerable people,
during this extraordinary period.
The Information Commissioner’s Office has blogged about their approach to
requests during this time: [1]blog
 
The Information Commissioner’s Office has released a statement about Data
Protection and the Coronavirus here: [2]statement

The majority of the Pension Fund investments are held in pooled funds and
the information we hold is the number of units held and the market value
of the pooled funds not the underlying investments.
