At Australian Catholic Superannuation we take our obligation to members and to promote best practice in ESG and RI very seriously. We have investments in clean energy, renewable energy and a separate investment option for those who wish to be stronger in this area. When selecting managers we specifically ask that all ESG is holistically managed as part of their investment process. We are in the process of restructuring our property and infrastructure managers and al new appointments will be strictly vetted to ensure that as well as being a 'good' manager that they are signatoriies to UNPRI and are good corporate citizens. Specifically we have a preference for managers that have been rated 'green' (property) and have a proven track record in this area (eg Generation as a PE manager, Sustainable Agriculture investments) etc.
We are currently assessing 'impact 'and 'social impact' investing.
Additionally in FY 2018 we have appointed two additional ESG managers. Robeco to manager Emerging Market Equities and wetre a cornerstone investor in Australian Renewables Infrastructure Fund
