first_imgAdvertisement Comment Nicolas Pepe completed a club-record £72m move to Arsenal last summer (Picture: Getty)Alexandre Lacazette has told Arsenal fans there is more to come from Nicolas Pepe but says they still need to be patient with the club-record signing.Ivory Coast international Pepe endured a largely underwhelming start to his Arsenal career following a £72million summer move from Lille, scoring just four goals in his first 27 appearances.But the 24-year-old produced his best performance to date as Arsenal thrashed Newcastle United 4-0 on Sunday, scoring once and making two assists.Lacazette, who scored the final goal in the emphatic victory, believes his Gunners team-mate is starting to show why he warranted such a big fee and has urged Arsenal fans to continue supporting him.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘I used to say we need to be patient with him,’ Lacazette said. ‘He is still young, he came from another league and it is always different.‘The Premier League is the hardest league in the world I think, so you have to be nice with new players like him.‘He is someone who needs confidence and when you give him confidence he is better. He just needs time to understand how the league is and now we can see a really good Nicolas Pepe.’ Advertisement Alexandre Lacazette sends message to Arsenal fans over record signing Nicolas Pepe Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle: Mikel Arteta press conferenceTo view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 video Play VideoLoaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%PlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 7:05FullscreenArsenal 4-0 Newcastle: Mikel Arteta press conferencehttps://metro.co.uk/video/arsenal-4-0-newcastle-mikel-arteta-press-conference-2112002/This is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

ABP to introduce ‘carbon budget’ for asset managers

first_imgShe made clear, however, that the scheme would still divest holdings if engagement ultimately failed.At present, ABP has approximately €100bn invested in listed companies.Meijer reiterated that the scheme wanted governments to follow “stable policies” for the long term.“We want a pleasant and liveable world for our participants,” she said, “and this requires measures against climate change.”She called for the abolition of government subsidies for fossil-fuel energy, as well as a more effective means of pricing carbon.She also demanded “fair competition” between fossil and renewable energy.“Only then can we invest a larger share of Dutch pension assets in a way that counters climate change and contributes to a better world,” she said. ABP recently announced that, over the next five years, it plans to double its current €29bn stake in companies providing “solutions” to social and environmental problems, such as water scarcity, flooding, commodity shortages and waste processing. This commitment includes a fivefold increase in sustainable-energy investments to €5bn. ABP, the €345bn pension fund for Dutch civil servants, is to introduce a “carbon budget” for asset managers as a means of cutting equity-holding CO2 emissions by 25% over the next five years.Speaking at the climate summit in Paris, José Meijer, the scheme’s vice-chair, said ABP would add the carbon budget to the financial target and risk budgets for asset managers.By reducing ABP’s carbon allowance annually, the scheme hopes to encourage asset managers to tackle carbon emissions at polluting companies, as well as prioritise investments in “clean” companies.Meijer said ABP would redouble efforts to engage with companies that had the potential to increase their sustainability significantly.last_img read more
