ACF recognised as Responsible Investment Leader for 2022
Launched this month, RIAA’s 2022 Benchmark Report shows the value of Australian assets managed using a responsible investment approach has hit $1.54 trillion, now accounting for 43% of the total market.
The report recognises 74 Responsible Investment Leaders, with Australian Communities Foundation being the only public charitable foundation on this year’s list.
This recognition comes off the back of the Foundation completing its transition to 100% responsible and ethical investing in 2021.
“We are proud to be recognised for our commitment to responsible investing,” says Australian Communities Foundation CEO Maree Sidey. “We will continue to lead the way on investing that provides both financial returns and positive outcomes for people and planet.”
Building on our ethical approach to investing, Australian Communities Foundation also announced its first impact investments in late 2021. Through these investments, the Foundation is contributing to positive social and environmental outcomes across our Impact Areas.
