We believe investing sustainably is a powerful way to achieve results both on and off the balance sheet. We think about the impacts, risks, and opportunities of our investments from an environmental social and governance (ESG) perspective. Our investment decisions are guided by our sustainability principles including positive outcomes, integration, stewardship, and exclusions. You can find out more about our Sustainable investment policy here.
All funds in the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme, Westpac Active Series and Premium Investment Funds which are open to new investment1 (except for the cash funds which are the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme Cash Fund and Westpac Premium Investment Fund Enhanced Cash Fund) have been certified by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) according to the strict operational and disclosure practices required under the Responsible Investment Certification Program.
