On 5 June 2018, the Trustee wrote to Section A and B members who are potentially affected by a court application currently being brought by BT.
BT has applied to Court for a judicial review of an HM Treasury decision that could impact how pensions in payment are calculated for certain Section B members.
From time to time the Trustee carries out a formal review of the actuarial factors which are used to calculate certain pension benefits.
The Trustee of the Scheme has updated the Privacy Notice, which explains how we manage the personal information that we hold.
BT and the Trustee of the BT Pension Scheme have reached agreement on the 2017 triennial funding valuation.
The Trustee has a fiduciary responsibility to meet the Scheme's liabilities and as a long-term asset owner considers sustainable factors to improve long-term risk adjusted returns. The area of sustainability as defined by the Trustee covers long-term factors such as environmental, social and governance (ESG) and stewardship.

The importance of responsible investment is illustrated by the scheme being a founder signatory to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment initiative (PRI). PRI provides a framework for investors to take ESG issues fully into account in their investment and ownership decisions and actions and the Trustee remains committed to its membership and active support of the organisation.

The Trustee is also guided by the requirements of the Financial Reporting Council’s Stewardship Code for UK institutional investors. For further information click here.
