HESTA supports the Uluru Statement from The Heart, which calls for recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a constitutionally enshrined Voice to Parliament.
We believe a Voice to Parliament can help ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a say on proposed laws that may impact them and is one way to support improved outcomes.
Our members are at the forefront of providing services to communities and understand the critical importance of ‘closing the gap’ in health, social and financial outcomes experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples compared with other Australians.
And as an investor, we believe that creating long-term value for our members depends on strong and respectful stakeholder relationships.
HESTA was among the first major super funds to implement a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Our reconciliation work continues to help us deliver Super with impact: through how we act as a member-focused fund, advocate for a fair and healthy community and invest with excellence for impact.
Our 2023-25 Innovate RAP sets out how we’ll continue to help advance reconciliation through our work, as a fund dedicated to health and community services and as an investor.
We use our deep understanding of our members to design information, tools and support to make a meaningful impact on their confidence about the future.
We use our expertise and influence to deliver strong long-term returns while accelerating our contribution to a more sustainable world.
