Vision Super has been recognised as one of only six Australian super funds at the cutting edge of responsible investment by the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
The 2019 PRI Leaders’ Group showcases signatories who are excelling in external manager selection, appointment and management. The PRI used a combined score from responses across the Reporting Framework for signatories to identify those who excel. Vision Super is very proud that our responsible investment management approach has been recognised, and that we are one of the funds being showcased by the PRI in order to raise standards of responsible investment among all of their signatories.
The Leaders’ Group consists of 47 asset owners, equivalent to the top 10% of PRI signatories globally. Vision Super has been recognised for leadership in ESG and our commitment to responsible investing initiatives within our investment governance framework.
In 2018 and 2019, Vision Super scored no less than a “A+” or “A” rating across all criteria and we have voluntarily opted to submitted work towards the climate change modules, which will be compulsory from 2020.
Vision Super’s Chief Responsible Investment Officer Adam Karaelis said Vision Super is honoured to be part of the PRI Leaders Group for 2019 and pleased to have been recognised for the Fund’s progress and achievements in responsible investment over the last few years.
“As a founding signatory to the PRI, we take a long-term view on all ESG matters from a risk and return perspective, are aligned to our investment beliefs, governance framework and investment objectives,” Adam said.
“We will continue on this journey, making improvements where it matters and effectively engaging with our outsourcing providers and the companies we are invested in.”
