We believe well-governed companies that manage material Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks and opportunities in their operations and supply chains, such as those that impact employees, suppliers, customers, communities and the environment, will protect assets and grow our members retirement savings over the long term. That’s why we take a ‘whole of fund’ approach, incorporating ESG risks and opportunities across investment decisions rather than only applying them to a stand-alone ethical or socially responsible investment option.

Cbus Super: Our commitment to responsible investing

Our approach to responsible investment

  • ESG integration – We assess how material ESG risks and opportunities are considered when choosing to invest in a company, or asset, or through an external investment manager and integrate these risks and opportunities as one input into our investment processes.
  • We are active stewards – In FY23, through voting at annual meetings and through discussions with the company or manager, we aimed to improve practices so that companies we invest in are better run and provide more sustainable long-term returns. We also encourage the development of standards, guidelines and regulatory reform while also promoting a shift towards a sustainable finance system. Either directly or alongside others, we support the development of policies, and research and make submissions to government and regulatory consultations.
  • We are evidence driven – We use a wide range of information and data to continuously evolve our evidence-based approach. We are involved in ongoing research to understand emerging issues, and provide evidence to measure and support our approach.
  • We are transparent – We measure our activities and report on our progress, so our members can be confident that we do what we say we do.
