  • The top 60 oil and gas producers by expansion plans

  • The top 30 companies by new gas power plant development plans
  • The top 30 companies by new coal power plant development plans

Coal exclusion policy

Vision Super excludes companies that generate more than 25% of revenue from the mining of thermal coal.

Oil & gas exclusion policy

Vision Super released an updated ESG policy in June 2021, restated in December 2021, which notes partial divestment from oil and gas companies. The policy states “Vision Super will not invest in companies that derive material revenue from oil and/or gas extraction where such investments are directly held,” meaning that the policy applies only to the fund’s active holdings (as opposed to its passive holdings).

Coal divestment action

Vision Super has divested from some thermal coal mining companies, like Whitehaven Coal and New Hope, as per the fund’s divestment list.

Oil & gas divestment action

Vision Super has divested from oil and gas producers Woodside and Santos in the fund’s active holdings, according to the fund’s ESG policy and divestment list.

Climate voting record

Vision Super discloses its proxy voting decisions after each financial year. The fund voted FOR 76% of the climate-related resolutions it has disclosed from 2017 to 2020.
