Overview

Future Super’s mission is to seek out financially rewarding investments in companies that are working for a better planet. Our investment strategy seeks to provide a competitive financial return for our members while making a positive impact for the environment and our society. Future Super is Australia’s first fossil free super fund. This means that Future Super will not invest in companies or activities which mine, extract, burn or distribute fossil fuels or which provide significant services or finance to fossil fuel projects. Future Super members believe the fossil fuel industry poses too many risks from an environmental, social and financial perspective. We believe that there are great opportunities to invest in companies and activities which are providing climate change solutions and making a positive contribution to the protection of our environment and our society.


Description


Future Super was created to connect Australians to their power to invest in a better future. Our impact is achieved by creating a community that divests from unethical and harmful activities and invests in businesses and projects that are making the world sustainable and equitable.  

We do not invest in any fossil fuel companies, or in any companies providing significant services and financing to the fossil fuel industry. We are the only super fund to not invest in the big four banks, who are the major financiers of fossil fuel projects in Australia. We also screen out investments in detention centres, live animal export, armaments, and more. Instead, we seek out investments in companies making a positive social and environmental impact, such as renewable energy and healthcare.  

Future Super offers both Account-based Pensions and Transition to Retirement Pensions with a Balanced Growth Investment Strategy. Our aim is to grow your wealth for retirement while building more of the world we all want to live in.
