At CareSuper, responsible investing is a core part of our investment program and our active investment approach enables us to review the environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials of every investment to maintain the highest standards. We ask our investment managers to do the same. This ensures we’ll always remain a strong and sustainable super fund.
Responsible investing explained
Responsible investing, sometimes referred to as sustainable or ethical investing, is an approach to investing which considers ESG factors in investment decision making.
Our approach to responsible investing
Responsible investing is integral to our investment approach. Why? We believe long term returns are positively influenced by investment management practices that are environmentally sustainable, socially responsible and well governed.
As a profit to members super fund, we aim to contribute to a brighter future for our members’ and their communities. View our Responsible Investing Policy.
