super with soul

Most Australians just assume their money is being invested responsibly. With Active Super, you know it is.

Our approach 

Unlike some super funds who offer ‘socially responsible’ or ‘ethical’ investment options within their broader portfolio, our responsible investment principles are applied to our ENTIRE range of products.

The companies we invest in are assessed for their ability to deliver strong financial performance, as well as their environmental, social and governance (ESG) impact on the world.

OUR FIRST IMPACT REPORT

It’s easy to see how your Active Super investments are performing financially. But how do you know what impact they’re having on the world? This report outlines the key areas of focus including climate change, diversity, good governance and social considerations. It highlights the different ways we assess risk, measure success and continue to prove our commitment to investing for the greater good.

Are we in? Or out? 

Once assessed for both performance and ESG impact, companies generally fall into one of three categories. Then we decide whether to invest. 


Our biggest opportunity is here

Companies in this middle section often have the potential to progress up into the top tier. So our decision on whether to invest is often YES, BUT only if we continue to see them making good progress on their ESG commitments.  

As shareholders, we also actively engage with the companies we invest in to make sure they continue to walk the ESG talk. Take a look at recent instances where we’ve been able to influence positive outcomes.

Quotation mark

At Active Super, we believe climate change is one of the most significant risks facing the world today. We were among the first super funds to move on climate change issues in 2009, and introduced climate change and fossil fuel reserve restrictions in 2014. We continue to use strategies across the fund to manage the risk of climate change.
