Who our members are

Cropped shot of a group of businesspeople standing in the office

Established in 2001, ACSI exists to provide a strong, collective voice on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues on behalf of our members. Our members include 37 Australian and international asset owners and institutional investors. Collectively, ACSI members own on average 10% of every ASX200 company.

Our members believe that ESG risks and opportunities have a material impact on investment outcomes. As fiduciary investors, they have a responsibility to act to enhance the long-term value of the savings entrusted to them.

As the major voice of asset owners in Australia, ACSI drives change among Australian listed companies and helps to shape the policy and regulatory environment in which they operate.

Collaboration underpins our success, without our members’ willingness to collaborate, we would not be as impactful as we are today, and the voice of investors would not resonate as powerfully as it does throughout corporate Australia

“We regard ESG risks and opportunities as financially material. As such, exercising our ownership rights to drive improvements in ESG practices and performance is not a matter of choice. It is an obligation we owe to organisations whose assets we own and ultimately to the members of our funds.”
