what is ESG?

balance

HESTA Chief Investment Officer, Robert Fowler, explains what ESG means for super and why it's important. 

In order for HESTA to achieve your future retirement goals, we need to think long-term. We consider the investment risks and opportunities that may come up, not only over the short term, but over years and even decades.

HESTA’s investments team and the investment managers we employ on your behalf not only consider financial analysis, but also weigh up environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, which can impact the long-term value of an investment.

We’re also working at ensuring other investors and companies behave responsibly, while still earning a good return for you.
