We believe strong performance should be underpinned by responsible investment practices.
We invest to deliver strong, long-term returns for members. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors play an important role in the investment decisions we make across our portfolio, because we believe these issues can present significant risks and opportunities for long-term investment performance. ESG factors taken into account in our investment process may include:
Our responsible investment approach affects all our superannuation and account-based pension products, using a combination of ESG integration and active ownership strategies. For more information on how we invest, please read our responsible investment definition.
Investment restrictions with revenue thresholds
To limit our exposure to certain industries and activities, we apply investment restrictions across the Active Super developed market listed equities portfolios. These investment restrictions are generally based on asset or revenue thresholds.
Using the data available from our ESG research provider, we identify the percentage of assets and/or revenue of companies in those portfolios that are directly attributable to the restricted activities, which include:
- Production of tobacco products, nuclear weapons, cluster bombs or land mines
- Gambling, conventional armaments, uranium mining and nuclear power
- Coal mining, oil tar sands mining, and coal-fired electricity generation
Specific definitions and thresholds apply to each of these categories.
For more information on our investment restrictions, please read our responsible investment definition.
