Responsible for a better future

We’re taking active steps towards a better tomorrow, from making our corporate spaces carbon neutral, to setting climate targets for our investment portfolios and funding innovative research and tech.

We support initiatives that deliver positive impacts for people and the planet. That's because we believe in a future worth retiring for.

Our corporate operations

We aim to maintain carbon neutrality across UniSuper’s offices and operations through energy-saving and digital-transformation initiatives, while purchasing carbon offsets in projects that help the environment too.

Energy saving

We source all our energy through GreenPower, operate from well-rated NABERS offices, and switched our head office to energy efficient LED lighting.

Digital transformation

Since our app launched in April 2022, it’s become a pivotal tool to communicate with and empower our members, cutting down on paper use.

Carbon offsets

We offset for operational emissions UniSuper produces. We favour Australia-based projects with societal and environmental benefits.

Responsible and sustainable investment

Responsible and sustainable investing is, for us, about identifying quality companies with good environmental, social and governance practices that deliver sustainable, long-term returns for our members.1
