Investing in renewables
Building a sustainable future
Responsible Ownership is an approach to investing that means we’re focused on returns, but also make investments that directly benefit our members’ communities and the broader society in which we live.
Our Responsible Ownership approach considers Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues to better manage risk and generate strong long-term investment returns.
An important part of this is transitioning our portfolio to support a low-carbon economy. Through our Climate Change Portfolio Transition Plan, we’re committed to investing in renewables and new technologies across our portfolio, and investing in companies with genuine renewable and clean energy targets.
