Policies

Our members believe that ESG risks and opportunities can 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.

One principle underpins everything we do, in that we are focussed on financially material ESG risks and opportunities over the long-term, to protect and enhance the retirement savings that are entrusted to our members. Accordingly, we have adopted policies that reflect the issues of material concern to our members.

Our policies outline our views on regulatory reform and good corporate practice that would contribute positively to the sustainability of financial markets. Our policy positions are outlined below.

In addition, ACSI’s Governance Guidelines provide a clear statement of our members expectations about the practices of the companies in which they invest.

Through our policies and advocacy work, we seek to promote a regulatory system that is equitable and aligned with the interests of long term investors.
