LUCRF Super gains Infinity Recognised status

Out of more than 100 super funds, LUCRF Super was amongst only 13 others which demonstrated a genuine commitment to their environmental and social responsibilities.

Leading super funds like LUCRF Super are increasingly adopting an Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) approach. This approach refers to management systems and processes that govern behaviour and conduct, taking into account the potential environmental, social and corporate governance investment risks.

Although 83% of super funds believe that they have a responsibility to operate sustainably, over the past three years only 20% of super funds have shifted towards a whole-of-fund ESG approach, according to SuperRatings’ Fund Sustainability Review 2013.

LUCRF Super believes that ESG issues can affect the performance of investment portfolios, and thus incorporates ESG considerations into its investment decision-making process to deliver sustainable investments for members’ portfolios.
