Investing to deliver great outcomes for our members and the community
We believe that investing responsibly by incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our decisions helps us do better for you while doing good for all. By managing risks like climate change, we aim to deliver strong long-term returns and better retirement outcomes for our members.
Taking the lead in responsible investing
We’re proud to be a leader in responsible investing. For the third year running, we’ve been acknowledged as a top 10 Responsible Investment Leader in 2021 by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA). RIAA is the largest network of organisations championing responsible investing in Australia and New Zealand, and collectively manages more than $A29 trillion in assets globally.
Climate League 2030: Action for a healthy economy
Today, investors (including Aware Super) acknowledge the impact on investment returns from climate change, opportunities of moving to a net zero economy, and the importance of putting climate risk at the centre of investment decisions. Climate League 2030 supports the goal of reducing Australia’s annual greenhouse gas emissions by at least a further 230 million tonnes from 2030 projections which is coordinated by the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) and assisted by foundational supporters including Aware Super.
Tilting toward a greener future
Increasing our investment exposure to high quality assets like Tilt Renewables helps generate strong returns to grow your super. Our investment in Tilt Renewables is important because it provides exposure to wind and solar assets and a significant development pipeline - strengthening our commitment to supporting Australia’s transition to a low-carbon economy.
Making a difference – engagement and collaboration
We engage and collaborate with other like-minded investors & industry associations to help us understand the ESG opportunities across a range of industries and sectors. We’re committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and as an asset owner we ensure that companies we invest in are governed and managed to enhance their long-term performance and protect our members’ retirement savings.
Our commitment to addressing climate change is part of how we do good while doing well for you.
