Victoria's Climate Change Pledge

This morning VicSuper attended the launch of Victoria’s new “TAKE2” Climate Change Pledge. Premier Daniel Andrews and Minister Lily D'Ambrosio launched the Pledge on the steps of Victoria’s Parliament in the company of business and community leaders along with school children from Mill Park Primary School.

TAKE2 is Victoria’s collective pledge initiative to take action on climate change to help Victoria reach net zero emissions by 2050. Our CEO Michael Dundon and our Corporate Responsibility Manager Kirsten Simpson, participated in the launch to demonstrate VicSuper’s in-principle support for the Pledge and the Victorian Government’s climate change strategy.

“We think it’s important for Government, business and the community to work together on tackling this very important issue. That’s why we’ve provided our in-principle support for the TAKE2 Climate Change Pledge” Michael Dundon.

“We are looking forward to participating in the work that Sustainability Victoria will lead on shaping the Pledge for business and industry. We are in the process of implementing our own Climate Change Strategy and we’re looking forward to sharing what we know and learning from others through this fantastic TAKE2 collaboration opportunity”. Kirsten Simpson.

VicSuper is actively considering how climate change risk impacts both our business and our investment portfolio. In May 2016, VicSuper’s Board and leadership team met to discuss how best to manage and reduce climate risk across our portfolio. We have convened a Climate Steering Committee, led by our CEO, who will be responsible for further developing and implementing our strategy..

As part of this strategy we are reviewing the investment options that we offer our members. We have collected a great deal of feedback and insight from our members and employers to shape our response. We are now in the final stages of modelling and testing an option that will specifically address climate change along with a number of other environmental and social issues.
