Case Study / 21 Feb 2014

Australian Super

Trucost analyzed Australian Super’s portfolio carbon intensity and exposure to fossil fuel extractive companies.

Australian Super commissioned Trucost to assess the carbon intensity assessment of the total equities portfolio. Trucost assessed the equities portfolio in comparison to the ASX 300 and the MSCI All World ex-Australia.  

Trucost found that AustralianSuper’s domestic and international equities holdings are less carbon intensive than relative benchmarks, according to a carbon assessment of its total equities portfolios. The AU$69 billion fund also commissioned Trucost to examine the portfolios’ exposure to fossil fuel extractive companies, and found that both the Australian portfolio and the international portfolio are less exposed to fossil fuel extractive companies than the ASX300 and MSCI All World ex-Australia.

The reports will be used as part of AustralianSuper’s engagement activities, which is embedded in the fund’s approach to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into investment decisions.
