So, how are we going to do it?

And we have formalised our principles and actions into commitment statements.
So, how does this help our members’ investment performance?
Well, the investment landscape has changed. Investors who consider environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities are more likely to have sustainable investments models and generate strong, long-term returns.
So, when we Invest with Purpose, we consider the impact our investments have on the planet and society. When we Advocate with Influence, we aim to create a fair and healthier community. And when we Lead by Example, we set the standard to create a better world for everyone.
This is HESTA Impact.
