The scheme's commitment has the same timeline as that of the government to make the UK net zero by 2050.
The trustees said they do not plan to use carbon offsets at fund level to achieve their goal.
However, some private sector DB schemes have indicated that they will become net zero. The £55bn BT Pension Scheme has a target date of 2035, and Tesco said its two main schemes will be net zero by 2050. The M&S Pension Scheme is planning to be net zero by 2040, aligning itself with its sponsor's net zero commitment. The government requiring firms to become net zero could in future prompt more DB schemes to follow their sponsor's lead.
