This report builds on research first published in November 2016 to map and inform asset owners of leading practice in responsible investment and to drive continual improvement in the development and implementation of responsible investment strategies.
Data in this report is sourced from a survey of the largest 48 superannuation funds in Australia, as well a handful of significant asset owners in our region including the two sovereign wealth funds in Australia and New Zealand. These 53 funds, in total, comprise an estimated $1.4 trillion in assets under management.
This report has undertaken analysis drawn from examining the practices of funds across a Five Pillar Framework covering Governance and Accountability; RI Commitment; RI Implementation; Measurement and Outcomes; as well as Transparency and Responsiveness. These pillars describe the elements of good governance for RI by super funds and used well, guide super funds on how to comprehensively and effectively implement RI strategies consistent with their investment beliefs and informed by their stakeholders.
