Acting on climate change

We’ve made a commitment to achieve 45% reduction in our operational emissions by 2030. These are the emissions produced as part of running the corporate entity, not by the companies we invest in.

We are implementing an emissions reduction strategy, which will see us relocate our major offices to sustainable buildings and use renewable energy.

Aware Super is Climate Active certified

Climate Active is a partnership between the Australian Government and Australian businesses to drive voluntary climate action. We are proud to say that our organisation is Climate Active certified.

To become carbon neutral, we calculate our greenhouse gas emissions and look for ways to reduce them. Emissions include things like fuel or electricity use and travel. To offset our remaining greenhouse emissions, we buy carbon credits that benefit the environment.

Moving towards equity through reconciliation

We pay our deepest respects to Elders past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members can face unique challenges with their super.

This can impact their future retirement outcomes and we’re working to change this.

We’re also advocating for change across the super sector. We want to effect real change for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members.

In 2021, we began a journey to reconciliation with the implementation of our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

As we continue on this journey, we are implementing the next level RAP, our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.

Uluru Statement from the Heart

Aware Super supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart, its spirit and aspirations. We believe in the human right of self-determination for all First Nations peoples, to have a voice on matters that affect them. It is our view that the legislative changes necessary to improve the lives of First Nations peoples and their families will require deep consultation with, and listening to, their voices.

We believe deeply that every Australian deserves to live their best possible retirement. Aware Super takes seriously our responsibility to work towards a superannuation system that allows for equitable access and participation for all First Nations peoples.

Promoting gender equality

Working towards gender equality is ingrained in our corporate practices. We support gender balance and are a signatory to the 40:40 Vision. This initiative aims to see women fill 40% of executive roles in ASX-listed companies by 2030.  

Our CEO, Deanne Stewart, is a Workplace Gender Equality Agency Pay Equity Ambassador. Deanne advocates for change in this space. 

And we strive to achieve Workplace Gender Equality Agency recognition, annually.

The gender pay gap is a measure of how we value the contribution of men and women in the workforce and it extends to superannuation. The gender superannuation gap is a key concern for our members. We advocate for policies to improve equity in super outcomes. This includes championing:

  • improved access to childcare to enable workforce participation
  • compulsory super payments for people on paid parental leave other equity measures to prevent women and low-income earners falling behind.
