Make your super matter

Your super can be better for people, planet and animals. It's simple, make sure it's invested in sustainable companies.


Positively world-changing

Nil investment in fossil fuel companies, weapons manufacturing or nuclear1

Avoids unnecessary harm to animals and actively advocates for animal welfare2

13x more investment in renewable power generation than the global share market3

1. Fossil fuel companies – We don’t invest in companies whose main business is fossil fuels, or in diversified companies that earn some fossil fuel revenue and aren't creating positive impact with their other activities. We may invest in a diversified company which is having a positive impact in other ways such as producing renewable energy, providing its negative revenue is sufficiently low (a maximum of 5% to 33% depending on the activity). We have never invested in tobacco and support Tobacco Free Portfolios. For more information, visit our Ethical Criteria.

2. Animal welfare – We do not invest in live animal export, intensive farming or cosmetic companies that test their products or ingredients on animals. For more information, read our position on animal protection, our animal advocacy work and our Ethical Criteria.

3. Renewable power generation – Proportion of our share investments in renewable power generation compared to blended benchmark of S&P ASX 200 Index (for Australian and NZ shareholdings) and MSCI World ex Australia Index (for international shareholdings).


Strong, long term performance

While we can’t predict future performance based on the past, our funds’ performance proves ethical investing is good for returns. Our Australian Shares super option ranks #1 on returns over 3, 5, 7 and 10 years in the SuperRatings Fund Crediting Rate Survey as at 31 March 20221.

Some super funds invest in WHAT!?

Where you invest your super matters. It could mean the difference between supporting animal welfare or animal cruelty.*

We believe that returns shouldn’t be made at the cost of animal welfare. In all of our investments, we avoid unnecessary harm to animals.
