Basic information

OO 01. Signatory category and services

01.1. Select the type that best describes your organisation or the services you provide.

01.3. Additional information. [Optional]

The Environment Agency Pension Fund (the Fund/ EAPF) is a defined benefit Local Government Pension Scheme with 39,500 beneficiaries and assets of around £3.5 billion. The participation rate of eligible beneficiaries is 95 per cent and the funding level at 31 December 2018 was 103 per cent.

As long-term investors, with liabilities reaching beyond 2100, our aim is to deliver a truly sustainable Pension Fund by ensuring that it is affordable, delivers financially to meet the objectives of our scheme employers and is invested responsibly.


OO 02. Headquarters and operational countries

02.1. Select the location of your organisation’s headquarters.

United Kingdom

02.2. Indicate the number of countries in which you have offices (including your headquarters).

02.3. Indicate the approximate number of staff in your organisation in full-time equivalents (FTE).

8 FTE

02.4. Additional information. [Optional]

The UK Government has introduced regulations that require Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Funds to pool investments, in order to improve efficiency. As a result of this, Brunel Pension Partnership Ltd (Brunel) was set up to pool investment assets across 10 LGPS Funds. These include our Environment Agency Pension Fund (EAPF) and 9 other Local Government Funds.

The management of assets is moving to Brunel in stages over a number of years. The EAPF team reduced in size because of this change but in return there are opportunities to extend our globally recognised work on responsible investment to the benefit of the wider pool of funds and their beneficiaries.
