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.
Committing to a better and more sustainable tomorrowWe take a continuous improvement approach in our responsible investment journey and we are now evaluating our investment portfolio’s impact on and contribution to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 17 SDGS were developed to promote a better, more sustainable future for all people. Read on to find out how NGS Super is addressing them.
Active ownership and engagementNGS Super’s Active ownership and engagement policy outlines our position and approach to active ownership, including proxy voting, company engagement and advocacy activities. This demonstrates our commitment to ESG criteria and responsible investing.
Policies and principlesWe invest over $11.7 billion on behalf of our members and we take our capital stewardship seriously. 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.
