Church Commissioners for England

The Church Commissioners for England (CCE) exist to support the work and mission of the Church of England and are one of the largest charitable givers in the UK. We manage a £10.1bn investment fund in a responsible and ethical way, using the money made from investments to contribute towards the cost of mission projects, dioceses in low-income areas, bishops, cathedrals, and pensions.  

Our investment policy is to hold a diversified portfolio of investments across a broad range of asset classes consistent with their ethical guidelines and our Responsible Investment (‘RI’) Framework. We have set our first emissions reduction target on the road to a net zero portfolio by 2050 and have signed up to and adhere to the Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI), the UK’s 2020 Stewardship Code and are committed to being aligned to the Paris Agreement.

Key Facts:

  • The Church Commissioners for England is one of the largest charitable givers in the UK.

We are pleased to be working with partners within the Better Buildings Partnership and see great value in this initiative to help support our ambitions as a responsible investor. We look forward to collaborating with others through BBP.”
