We care about being responsible and doing the right thing. It’s not only good for our members, it’s good for the community and good for business.

Corporate sustainability is how we as a company bring our approach to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues into practice. We make choices that consider the environment, the communities our members live and work in and how we manage our organisation.

As an investor of retirement savings, we also focus on responsible ownership. For us, being a responsible owner means we invest for strong retirement outcomes for our members, while also considering the impact of our investments on the environment and society.

Aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations established 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. These goals are important because they aim to make the world a better place for everyone. We use these goals to help shape how we make decisions. We look for ways to make a positive impact for a more equitable and sustainable world.

We selected seven SDGs where our operations could have the biggest impact. Each year we report on our contribution to these SDGs in our Annual Report’s Strategy Scorecard

Modern slavery

Modern slavery is a serious breach of dignity and human rights. It can take many forms. It could include trafficking people, forced labour and slavery. 

We have an obligation to produce a Modern Slavery Statement under the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018.  Our Modern Slavery Statement is assessed annually based on:

  • our supply chains
  • the investments we make. 

We do this to identify and assess our exposure to modern slavery risk. We also assess the actions we’ve been taking to address the risk.

Our Annual Report

Our Annual Report is one of many ways we communicate to our members and other stakeholders. It details our performance, key outcomes achieved and our outlook for the future. 

For the first time in 2022/23 financial year, we obtained limited assurance for our operational emissions (PDF, 0.46mb).

Corporate governance and how we report

We align our Annual Report to the International Integrated Reporting Framework. This framework is a set of guidelines that help companies:

  • report on their performance
  • consider long term plans, and
  • deal with risks and opportunities.

The framework also helps companies communicate with transparency. 

In 2022, we achieved a Silver Award at the Australasian Reporting Awards for our 2021 Annual Report.
