People Sustainability


For a company to present itself as a sustainable, it needs to be doing everything it can to be a responsible employer. Mercer offers around 40 separate best practice audit, diagnostic and delivery solutions, for areas from D&I to living wage analysis to support the development of your ESG strategy

Sustainable Investment


ESG is more than fund selection. Asset owners need to decide their ESG priorities and ensure alignment between stakeholders, so they can focus on investment decisions to generate truly sustainable long term returns.

Workforce Transformation


It is easy to assign sustainability tasks to executives but far more challenging to ensure responsibility cascades downwards. Organisations will fail to meet their sustainability objectives unless they set goals and organise themselves to achieve these goals.


Responsible Investing for UK Pension Schemes


Our Time for Action: UK Pension Schemes’ Journey to ESG report draws on data gathered from Mercer’s Responsible Investment Total Evaluation (RITE) analysis of more than 650 UK occupational pension schemes.
