TAKE ACTION – VOTE YOUR SUPER
Superannuation funds hold shares in companies on behalf of their members.
When a resolution is put forward at a company annual general meeting, super funds, as shareholders, are able to vote on that resolution.
The Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility (ACCR) is developing a platform for superannuation fund members to learn more about their funds stance on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Through our platform, super fund members will have the opportunity to tell their fund how they would like them to vote on upcoming ESG resolutions. Fund members will also be able access information detailing how their fund has voted on past ESG resolutions as well as compare their fund’s commitments to ESG issues with that of other funds.
This information will be available from July 2018.
