The EAPF is an award-winning pension fund with accolades in areas such as investment and governance.


In February 2023, EAPF won 2 awards at the ‘Pensions for Purpose’ awards.

The Paris Aligned Award for Best Climate Governance and Strategy Statement - the judges commented that the EAPF is "Setting the standard on how improvements year on year can progress on this key issue." They added "their member survey results were shared and there was an up front, clear summary of the policy using an excellent ‘policy in a nutshell’ framework.  There was also a good explanation of net zero, Paris alignment and the role of fossil fuels, and a clear summary of targets".

The Impact Investing Adopter Award - the judges said the EAPF was "selected as the winner because of the integration across their work, their pragmatic approach and compelling impact case studies – particularly in emerging markets".

Best Climate Change Strategy

In March 2022, we won the Local Authority Pension Fund (LAPF) awards for the Best Climate Change Strategy.

It’s great to be recognised for all the work that’s gone into this area, and shows that as a fund we’re considering our impact on the planet in all we do.


Best Pension Fund in the United Kingdom’ Award at the IPE Awards

In December 2020, the Environment Agency Pension Fund won ‘The Best Pension Fund in the United Kingdom’ Award at the IPE Awards 2020. IPE is Europe’s premier Pensions website.

The judges commented: "This fund should be applauded, with strong performance figures backed by a proactive, efficient and innovative response to the pandemic, whilst keeping focus on environment, social and governance issues and the views of its members."

But we didn’t stop there. We also won the ‘Best approach to Sustainable Investment’ at the LAPF awards. (LAPF Investments is the magazine for local authority pension investment specialists).

All this in the year when, for the second time running, we were recognised by the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) as a global leader on responsible investment.
