Diversity and inclusion
Rest fosters a diverse and inclusive culture where people feel welcome and inspired to do their best, regardless of any characteristic they may have.
We support diversity, recognising that people from different backgrounds bring different skills, knowledge and experiences. This diversity of views strengthens decision making in the best interests of Rest members.
Rest has a 33% minimum target for males and females on the board, which was achieved in June 2021.
We understand that the impact of climate change concerns our members, and that it is a financial risk for long term investors. With 50% of our members under the age of 30*** and with decades before retirement, it is important to think long term. So, we have adopted an objective to achieve a net zero carbon footprint for the fund by 2050. This reinforces our approach to managing ESG factors like climate-related risk and aligns with long term investment performance.
