SUPER FUNDS
COMPARISON TABLE

What future is your super funding?

Use the table below to find out whether your super fund is investing your retirement savings into polluting fossil fuels.

Superannuation allows Australians the opportunity to retire with comfort and security. But what if the super we retire with has been funding environmental destruction and runaway climate change? 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?

Use the table below to see which super funds are invested in companies that are actively undermining the climate goals set out in the Paris Agreement, and take action to tell your fund to lift its game on climate action.

What the column headings mean:

Coal investment exclusion

How comprehensive is this super fund’s policy to exclude investments in the coal industry, if it has one at all?

Oil & gas investment exclusion

How comprehensive is this super fund’s policy to exclude investments in the oil & gas industry, if it has one at all?

Votes in favour of climate-related shareholder resolutions

What proportion of climate-related shareholder resolutions has this super fund voted in favour of? Super funds hold large quantities of shares, so they can make a big difference by exercising their shareholder voting rights to protect our climate.
