About Us

What we do?

Responsible Returns helps one find, compare and choose responsible and ethical superannuation, banking and investment products.

Responsible Returns filters products based on areas of interest, such as health care and education, or practices to be avoided, such as producing fossil fuels or testing on animals.

Responsible Returns has been created by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA). All of the products and funds that feature on the Responsible Returns have been certified in accordance with the Australian and New Zealand Responsible Investment Standard, ensuring that a product or fund’s investment intentions and processes are consistent with its responsible investment claims.

While organisations pay a fee to apply for certification, we receive no commission for the promotion of products and funds that have been certified.

Responsible Returns works best for those wanting products in Australia and New Zealand, but we do also have a number of certified investment products that have a global reach. The filters can search certified products based on product types, themes to invest in or themes to avoid.

Responsible Returns is an initiative of the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA).
