What future is your super funding?
Superannuation allows Australians the opportunity to retire with a greater level of comfort and security. But what if the super that we retire with has been funding the environmental destruction and runaway climate change we need to avoid? What if, by being invested in fossil fuels like coal mining and coal seam gas, our super funds deliver us a polluted world to retire into?
The reality is many of Australia’s superannuation funds are invested in these dirty industries. Market Forces is campaigning for super funds to divest from coal and gas. We’re also here to help Australians make sure their retirement isn’t funded by environmental destruction.
Our Super Switch project allows you to see which super funds are exposed to companies that are part of the coal, oil and gas sectors. We also make contacting funds easy, so you can learn more about different funds’ positions on fossil fuel investment.
If you find your fund’s investments don’t match up with your values, use your power as a member to call on them to divest from fossil fuels for the sake of our climate and environment.
Find out more about how our super funds are using our retirement savings to support the fossil fuel industry, jeopardising our chances of a safe climate future.
Learn how super funds are voting for fossil fuel company executives to get paid bonuses if they explore for more unburnable carbon.
