The Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI) and our members take their responsibilities to safeguard superannuation investments seriously. We recognise that long-term, sustainable investment is underpinned by environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles.
There are too many examples in corporate Australia of poor behavior, including a failure to manage ESG risks, which have elevated public concern. Too often, investors and the wider community have borne the consequences. The Final Report of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry outlined the need for change. It is important
to keep that momentum going and now deliver better corporate accountability.
This document lists tangible actions designed to strengthen corporate accountability, which we will
advocate for on behalf of our members and investors. Improving corporate accountability will also drive better outcomes for companies and the Australian community more broadly.
