Integrating responsible investing for better returns
At NGS Super, we believe that integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and responsible investment principles plays a vital role in managing risk within our investment portfolio and providing our members with better risk-adjusted returns.
Policies and principles
We invest over $11.7 billion on behalf of our members and we take our capital stewardship seriously. Our policies on responsible investment and active ownership and engagement are publicly disclosed, and we are a proud signatory to the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI) Asset Owner Stewardship Code and the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI). We hold a seat on the ACSI member council, are an active member of the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) and the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA). We believe that investing in a way that not only provides good financial returns to members, but also positively impacts society (both locally and globally) is a win-win.
