In a first for an industry super fund, Vision Super today announced they are seeking an enthusiastic environmental activist to join their Climate Action Team. Vision Super CEO, Stephen Rowe, said the Climate Action Team was formed to manage climate risk in investments and push for the policy changes needed at a national and international level.

“We’re a signatory to the Paris Agreement, and take the risks posed by climate change very seriously, so we’ve formed a Climate Action team that includes Michael Wyrsch, our Chief Investments Officer, as well as me as the CEO, and members of our investment and strategy teams,” he said.

“Markets are not pricing climate risk in appropriately, so we’ve already acted to reduce the carbon intensity of our portfolios to protect our members’ retirement savings.

“We’re also taking a shareholder activist approach, which has already made a real difference to emissions disclosures by companies like Exxon.

“We’re now looking for an enthusiastic, qualified climate activist to join the team and help us take action on climate change, and promote our approach to ESG. This isn’t a traditional 9-5 office job where you wear a suit and sit in an office. This is a job for an energetic activist who wants to get out to climate rallies, meetings and community events and promote Vision Super.

Vision Super is committed to environmentally sustainable investment, and offers Australia’s lowest cost sustainable investment option[1]. We are ranked 19th out of the world’s 500 largest investors for our action on climate change in the 2017 Global Climate Index by the Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP) and by the Responsible Investors Association of Australasia (RIAA) as the fourth largest responsible investor in Australia.
